Indian Chapati bread



2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp cumin seed (or ground)

2 1/2 tsp olive oil

3/4 cup (or as needed) water

2  1/2 tbsp coconut oil

3 tsp garlic powder


In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and cumin.  Add olive oil, then slowly add water, and mix.  The mixture should begin to form a dough that is not too sticky.  Knead dough for 5 min.  Cover, and set aside about 10 min.  Separate dough into six even-sized balls, and flatten into discs.  On a floured surface, roll out each disc until thin, and set aside.  Lightly oil pan with half of coconut oil over medium heat.  Add chapatis, one at a time, to heated pan.  Lightly brown on each side, about 1 min or until small bubbles begin to appear on surface.  Remove from pan.  While still warm, lightly brush each chapati with remaining coconut oil, and sprinkle garlic powder.  Serve warm.  Enjoy!
