Step 1

In a medium sized bowl, mix together 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour, 2 Tbsp. chia seeds, and ¼ tsp. salt. Knead this to a soft dough with hands by adding water little by little. When the dough stops sticking to your hands and to the bowl, you know that it is at the right consistency. This will take about 3 minutes

Step 2

Using your hands, coat the dough with 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Step 3

Cover the dough with a tea cloth or place a plate on the bowl and allow it to rest for 1 hour. Resting the dough will yield soft chapatis Chia needs more time to soften. So unlike regular rotis where ½ hour resting may be enough, you’ll need to double that time here

Step 4

After the dough has rested, set a cast iron flat griddle on medium heat

Step 5

Ensure you have a clean surface - approx. 15” x 15” in size - to roll the chapatis. Sprinkle that surface with a little dry flour and knead the dough for a minute. Then divide the dough into 8 equal parts and roll each one into the shape of a ball. Press each ball slightly between your palms to flatten it

Step 6

Dust each flattened dough patty with dry flour and use a rolling pin to make a flat chapati roughly 10 inches in diameter

Step 7

Place the rolled out chapati on the hot griddle and cook for half a minute. When tiny bubbles appear, flip the chapati with a flat flipper spatula or a metal tong. Flip back and cook on both sides until well doneAdjust the heat every few minutes to avoid burning the chapati

Step 8

Remove the cooked chapati from the griddle and place it on the tea towel and repeat the process for the other dough patties. Coat the chapatis with a little melted ghee on both sides

Step 9

Enjoy your sublime chia chapatis with your favorite side dish or make a delicious wrap 😋
