How to make Chapati with Rice Flour
Hi Friends,
Today I am here with a recipe which i wanted to try since childhood. Yes heard right childhood. My mom use to make these Rice Flour Chapati for us and i always asked her to make 2 more chapatis to enjoy them with evening cup of milk. In the evening i roast them again with some ghee/butter and make them crisp and enjoy with milk. Even i can have them as it is without any accompaniment  I tried lots of time to make them but it was a laborious work. My mom use to take whole flour in a big vessel then knead a little at a time and shaping it with her hands to make a round big chapati. Earlier i thought that how easy it is but when i tried it, i made one chapati and my hands started aching like anything. 
I always tried to find some easy way to make them. But never succeed. Then i entered in blogging world and came to know about South Indian Cooking and i fall in love with it. I love there way of cooking. There i found a very easy way to make these chapatis. I tried it and was very surprised to see that how easy it become to make these flat breads. While i was making them my son came running and said give me this Dosa, i laughed and told him that this is chapati not dosa, but he kept on calling it dosa. He ate 3 small chapatis and my daughter also ate 3. Only 2 were left for me. I ate them with milk as use to do in my childhood days delighted to know that Now i can make my favorite chapati myself. 

Rice Flour- 1 cup
Carom seeds- 1 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp

  1. It is important to keep the dough covered all the time otherwise it will get dry and very difficult to handle. 
  2. You can always apply some ghee/butter on it while roasting the roti as it will give your more crunchy and chewy taste.
  3. You can make it more healthay and tasty by adding more spices like , cumin seeds, coriander, chopped onion etc.
  4. You can them simple also without any spice like skip carom seeds if you or your kids don't like them.
