  • 3.Knead a little again, roll pieces of dough into smooth balls, flatten and roll into rounds about 1/8" thick (will take some practice).
  • 4.Place the tawa over the fire, and heat over high heat till a drop of water thrown over it, evaporates immediately with a sizzling sound.
  • 5.Place a chapatti over the tawa and as soon as the edges start rising lift it with a pair of and place over a direct flame, with the uncooked side down. It will puff up immediately.
  • 6.Flip it over to cook the other side a little more and your chapatti is ready.
