Cooking Time: 10 Minutes Serves: 4 Plates
- 50 gms Desiccated Coconut
- 1 tbsp Psyllium Husk
- 10 ml or 1 tbsp Melted Coconut oil
- ½ tsp Ajwain or Carom Seeds
- 1/4th tsp Pink Salt
- ½ cup Hot water
- 2 tsp Ghee
- In a bowl measure the desiccated Coconut and Psyllium husk.
- Add the salt and put it in a grinder.
- Now grind the mixture till it is a fine powder.
- Take out the mixture in a bowl, add the melted oil and carom seeds to it. Mix well.
- Slowly add half the water to it. The ingredients will start binding with each other; add more only if you think the batter is very dry and not coming together. The water needs to be hot, not boiling.
- Now let the dough rest for five to seven minutes. Heat the griddle or non-stick pan on which you intend to cook the chapati.
- Smear the hot plate or tawa with half the ghee and got it ready.
- Cut two pieces of parchment or baking paper. Divide the batter into four parts and form small balls in your hands.
- Place one ball between the sheets of paper and lightly press with a rolling pin or belan. Do not apply too much pressure or the batter will stick to the paper.
- Now you can either lift the bread with a flat spoon or with your hands and place it on the hot plate.
- Keep the heat high and let it get lightly golden on one side before you turn it.
- Turn a few times more, with a flat spoon, the bread should be cooked from all sides and should be crisp. Don’t worry it does not stick to the plate, because of the oil in it. Have it hot with any veggie of your choice.
