How to make Bread in 3 minutes – Chapati –

13 Jan

Hey,

We just arrived to a new farm yesterday in South France, close to Orange. Like we said we will now start putting on recipes we’ve learnt on our trip.
This first one is a recipe we got from Alba, Italy. We asked our host for some bread and she showed us how to make our own in 5 minutes. Well it is actually more like Naan bread, it’s flat and Soooo Easy to do… they call it Chapati.

For about 12 Chapati, you need :

-Flour (250g or 2 cups)
-Olive Oil or butter (2 or 3 tablespoons)
-Warm water
-Salt to taste

Take a large bowl. Pour in the flour and then make a hole in the middle. Put the Olive Oil or the previously warmed butter and the salt. You need to put quite a lot, as you like. Then add warm water little by little while you stir. It needs to look like a paste that holds together!
Then simply cut pieces and flat them on the table using your hands or an empty bottle. It is best to roll them in Flour so they won’t stick.
Get your pan hot and dispose the flat bread on it without any oil, wait until it cooks to change side and it’s ready to be eaten.
You should be able to do quite a lot of them. It’s easy and very fast.

TIP : Add some Spices, like Curry or Herbe de Provence, Thyme whatever you like !

Here is our video that explains everything !
Stay tuned for the Week 11 video coming out this week end and for more goodies !!

With love,

Eva and Manu
