    1. 1
      Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl and make a hollow in the centre.
    2. 2
      Add the water gradually, working in the flour to make a firm dough.
    3. 3
      Knead well for about 15 minutes, until the dough is smooth.
    4. 4
      Cover with a damp cloth and leave to stand for about 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      The dough should be quite firm and hard.
    6. 6
      Divide the dough into eight portions.
    7. 7
      Roll each into a circle, about 15 cm (6 inch) in diameter, sprinkling the rolling pin and work surface with flour to prevent sticking.
    8. 8
      Cook each chapati in a very hot heavy frying pan, without fat.
    9. 9
      When the top surface shows signs of bubbling, turn the chapati over and cook for 30-40 seconds on the other side.
    10. 10
      Then place the chapati under a warm grill until it puffs up.
    11. 11
      Spread margarine lightly on one side, fold over and serve hot.

      I'm not sure what I did wrong, but mine didn't puff up. I may not have cooked them long enough. For such a simple recipe they are surprisingly tasty. If it weren't for all of the kneading I'd be sure I'd make these regularly. As is I'm sure I'll have them again.
