Serves 4


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for kneading
  • 1 Tbsp. full cream milk powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ghee for brushing


At Home

  • Mix the flour, milk powder and salt in a medium-sized zip lock bag. Pack the ghee separately.

On the trail

  • In the bag with the flour mixture, gradually add 1/3 to 1/2 cup water. Close the bag and knead the smooth dough. Leave to rest for about 5 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 8 parts. Shape each piece into a ball, then roll out, or knead into flat disks (as thin as possible).
  • Place a pan over medium heat. Fry the chapati one at a time, for 1-2 minutes on both sides or until golden-brown. Take out of the pan and brush with ghee. Serve with curries, spicy couscous, and soups.
