Chapati or roti you name it. I ate so many of these on my trips to India in the past few years. This recipe I collected from an old lady I met at Timbaktu Collective in Andhra Pradesh. I stayed in that area for few days and every morning I joined the ladies for the cooking for the local community. The chapati is such an easy dough, prepared quickly, and doesn't require any special equipment, neither a leavening agent. That's how we managed to cook every morning and evening a full dinner for 150 people! This is a very special bread for me, brings up memories and flavors from India that I miss so much. I really want to start traveling again soon and to discover new cuisines and cultures from all over the world!
