Level of Difficulty: Don't Try This At Home
Alright, now, even though I've given this a difficult rating, I only say that because if you haven't ever made bread before, this could be hard. Like me, I've never made bread before. But I did get to watch and see how this was made in a Ladakhi home and I must say, it is THE best bread I've EVER had. Ladakhi ChapatiIngredients
- 1 LBS. wholewheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 12 oz. cool waterInstructions
- Combine flour and salt in a large bowl or large cookie sheet pan.
- Make a little hole in the middle and add a small amount of water. Adding a little more water to make sure all the mixture is included, begin kneading the dough. (This will take some time and elbow grease.)
- Add more water if needed. You should have a spongy, moist dough when done kneading.
- Let sit for 15 minutes.
- Using a clump of dough, roll out to make small balls.
- Using a roller, roll the dough into a flat, round pancake shape.
- Using your fingers, extend the outer rims of the dough to make a flatter, larger chapati.
- Place on a hot pan to cook until bubbles appear.
- Flip over for a short time.
- You should have round puffed bread! Yummy with anything you pair it with.
