Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: 12 small chapattis


  • 2 cups wholewheat flour
  • 2 tbsp groundnut / rapeseed oil
  • good handful Wild garlic, finely chopped
  • (judgement) Water
  • Salt to taste

“Spice” Spotlight: Wild garlic
Wild garlic has similar benefits to standard garlic - effectively reducing high blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels; and reducing susceptibility to colds and viruses. Wild garlic grows in wooded areas and can be easily grown as an additional herb in your garden.


  1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl and add the salt.
  2. Make a well in the flour and add the oil and wild garlic.
  3. Stir the mixture then slowly add a little water at a time, mixing between additions.
  4. Stir to form a smooth dough that holds together and leaves the side of the bowl clean. (If too sticky, add a little more flour; if to crumbly add a little more water.)
  5. Take the dough out of the bowl and kneed on a clean, floured surface.
  6. Divide dough into 12 balls
  7. Lightly coat one ball in dry flour
  8. Flatten the ball and roll to a circle (add extra flour if sticking to the rolling pin)
  9. Heat a small frying pan (griddle) on a medium heat and add chapatti
  10. When bumps form across surface of chapatti, turn over
  11. Once second side is cooked to same as first, turn it over again.
  12. After a few seconds, press down the puffed chapatti with a spatula
  13. Once fully puffed, take out and serve immediately or store in a kitchen-towel lined container (this will keep the chapattis soft and stop them drying out).
