Gram (chickpea) chapatis (Indian flatbreads) (vegan)

A chapati is a flat round bread from the Indian cuisine traditionally used to accompany all meals. Usually, chapatis are made with whole-wheat flour (as opposed to a roti which is very similar but made with all-purpose flour). But the gram chapati (made with chickpea flour) is another variation of these delicious flat-breads which tastes even more "whole" and authentic. 
We had them with a main of Chicken Jalfreezi, but feel free to eat them with any kind of spread (even a humble butter-and-salt) or curries. Enjoy :)

Last year: Shopska salad (Bulgarian).
Two years ago: Mushroom and baby corn soba noodles (vegan).
Three years ago: Truffle potato mash and Salată asortată (Romanian assorted salad) (raw vegan).
Four years ago: Baby making and no cooking :).

Ingredients (makes 8):
  • 200 g wholemeal wheat flour (plus a little extra for dusting)
  • 100 g chickpea flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (plus a little extra for brushing)
  • 200 ml lukewarm water

Combine the flours and the salt:

Add the water and vegetable oil and work the mass into an even dough. Divide it in two, then again in two and so on until you have eight equal pieces.

Let the dough rest for at least 15 minutes. Then heat a large frying pan or griddle, flatten each dough ratio into a round flatbread, brush with some extra oil and fry it for 2-3 minutes on each side:

As one chapati fries, flatten the next. When each bread is ready, stack them one on top of the others on a plate and continue to fry the next.

Continue until all 8 pieces are fried. Serve warm. Dig in! :)
