Our housekeeper and cook, Jacinta, gave me my first cooking lesson yesterday - chapatis. They are pretty simple, just take time to knead the dough, let it sit and knead some more. The dough just consists of whole wheat flour, water, and a dash of salt. Jacinta is very good at making perfect circles, I am working on it. Chapatis are used like naan, to scoop up yummy, saucy dishes like dal, palak paneer, and curries. (Jacinta was shy about the camera, so she's only half in it).
