Puffed Chapati !!

Although I make tava chapati's frequently at my place, I never tried doing the puffed chapatis or phulka chapati. Once when we were out for dinner, my husband was impressed by the soft phulka's they served and from then on he insisted me to prepare puffed chapatis at home. Earlier i used to not get very good puffed chapatis but with practice i eventually succeeded. The process of making puffed chapatis is similar to making tava chapati's with one additional step. That's it just one more step and you get supersoft puffed chapatis :)

Ingredients :
Wheat flour - 2 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp 
Water - 3/4 cup
Oil - 1/2 tsp (optional)

Method :
1) Add wheat flour, salt in a wide bowl and mix them well. 
2) Add water little by little to form a soft solid dough.
3) Add oil and knead it again till it becomes not be too tight or too loose.
Simple test at this stage is when you pick a sample small piece it should be solid and non sticky.
4) Now break the dough into small pieces.
5) Roll these balls evenly using your palm
6) Roll each ball into thin circles evenly by dusting flour as required.
7) Heat tawa and keep in medium flame.
8) Add the flattened out roti dough and wait for few seconds.
9) Once small bubbles begin to appear, flip it to other side.
10) Wait for few more minutes till brown spots appear.
11) Now with the help of a tong,  transfer it to the flame. 
12) In few minutes time, it will begin to puff.
13) Carefully transfer it with tong to to hot pack. 
14) Repeat the same procedure for all other roti balls.
