For 20 or 24 chapatis:

- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon of ghee or oil
- 1 cup of lukewarm water
Reserve about 1/2 cup of flour for rolling chapatis.
Pour the remaining flour in a large bowl, add salt and oil or ghee. Pour all the water at once, mix and knead 10 minutes until dough is firm enough (more kneaded, the more light will chapatis).
Roll into a ball and cover with a cloth and let stand 1 hour. If the dough restovernight, the chapatis will be very light and crispy.
Divide dough in making the balls the size of a large walnut, flatten each ball on floured plate, giving it a circular shape as thin as a pancake.
Heat a crepe pan or heavy skillet and cook the chapatis.
