Oats Chappathi/ Indian Bread

11/2 cup- Quaker oats
11/2 cup- Wheat flour
2tsp -olive oil
salt to taste
Hot Water to knead with

1.Mix wheat flour, oats, salt, and oil. Add water slowly in small amounts and knead it into a soft dough. If you have a food processor you can add everything together to make the dough.
2.Allow the dough to stand covered for at least 20 minutes.
3.When you are ready to make chapathi, divide the dough into lemon-sized balls. Dip the round balls into flour and roll the balls into circles with a rolling pin.
4.In a pan, cook the chapathi on both sides by adding a very few drops of oil.

If you want to make square shaped parotha-chapathi:
1.Divide the dough into balls that are a bit bigger than the ones you would use to make the round chapathis.
2.Dip the round balls into flour and roll them out into 6” circular discs.
3.Brush the chapathi facing you lightly with oil.
4.Now we need to fold the chapathi.
Follow the picture.

1.Fold one side of the disc towards the centre.
2. Fold the other side over the folded side.
3. Bring the right side towards the centre.
4.Fold the left side over the right side to form a square.
5.Roll on all four sides, keeping the square shape.

You can also add methi leaves, cumin, minced onion, green chillies, curry leaves, or red chilly powder to this while you make the dough.
