Author Notes: The word 'chapati' is considered of Dravidian origin, from chappa meaning 'flattened' and attai or paathi. Chapati. Chapatis are one of the most common forms in which wheat, the staple of northern South Asia, is consumed. Chapati is a form of roti (bread). The words are often used interchangeably. While roti refers to any flat unleavened bread, chapati is a roti made of whole wheat flour and cooked on a tava (flat skillet).pauljoseph

I tried making this but I got a runny mixture. Should the milk be powdered?
