Ugandan Chapati

Chapati is something that we learned about a little too late when we were in Uganda. One of our last nights, friends came over with it and were like "what you haven't tried it yet?". We actually had tried it when we ate Rolex - just didn't know it alone. It is somewhere between a flatbread, naan, or tortilla bread. It is not the easiest thing to cook right - but worth it when you do.

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • warm water
  • cooking oil
  • finely chopped purple onions
  • finely chopped garlic

  1. Mix flour, onion, and salt in a bowl
  2. Mix water in slowly until you get a thick dough
  3. Knead slowly adding in flour as need be
  4. Cover bowl of dough with a cloth and let it sit for a t least a half hour
  5. Preheat skillet and coat with oil
  6. Divide dough into small balls
  7. Flatten balls into rounds
  8. Dust chapati rounds with flour
  9. Fry on each side until both sides have brown marks
  10. Enjoy!
