2. To make it easier, rub your hands with a little vegetable oil, then knead the dough until softish and pliable. Keep covered until ready to use.


 3. To make the Chapattis - Divide the dough into 6 then knead each portion well and shape into a ball, keeping the remaining dough covered.


4. Roll the ball out on a floured surface to a circle approximately 17.5cm/7 inches in diameter.


5. Heat a heavy frying pan or griddle and when very hot, toast the chapattis on both  sides until browned, pressing the edges down as it cooks.


6.  Brush one side of the cooked chapattis with a little melted butter and keep warm,wrapped in foil, whilst you cook the remainder. Serve warm.
