They have shared a very informative post on the different varieties of this Choux pastry and a detailed step by step guide on how to make my favourite Éclairs. Yumm yumm.

In our new festive article we will research choux and charlotte, find desserts made with choux pastry (pâte à choux) and make our own “choux charlotte” with eclairs filled with chocolate whipped cream, caramel bavarian cream and caramelised nuts!
This type of roti /flatbread is easy to make and stays soft for a longer time. This is a chapati recipe step by step.
Especially when there are lots of guests at home, this technique makes 2 chapatis at a time. So easy, fast and softest chapati/ rotis. This roti is known as padwali/parwali roti as there are layers in it.
Scroll down to find out Additional uses of this Roti and a tip on How to keep the rotis soft for longer !!!!
My toddler Zo is teething and she prefers soft rotis so that she can chew it easily, this padwali roti is a huge hit with her. Try this roti with babies and toddlers.
Just take 2 small portions of dough and make lemon sized balls, press and flatten it. Apply some ghee or oil on one side of one ball and sprinkle some dry flour on another one and press them together, the oiled side comes in between.
Roll it like a chapati and roast on a hot tawa/ griddle on high. No need to flip again and again or press the chapati.
Just flip once, let it cook for 30 seconds and bring it down in a plate.
Press with your palm and immediately separate the two layers. Be very careful doing this as the steam might burn the the hand.
Wheat flour: 2 cups
Salt: a pinch
Water: 3/4 cup or as needed
Ghee/oil : 1 tsp for dough and some for smearing according to taste
Kneading the dough
Take a large bowl and add flour and salt. Keep adding water slowly and knead it. Do not put all the water together. Slowly keep working to get a smooth workable dough. Add a tsp or two of oil or ghee so that it does not stick to fingers.
Knead again for a minute or two and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Making the roti: Now divide the dough into small balls, smaller than a lemon.
Flatten 2 balls, apply oil/ghee on one ball, and dry flour on the other. Press them together and flatten. Roll into a chapati.
Roast on a hot tawa – How do you know if tawa is hot enough? Sprinkle a pinch of flour on it, if the flour turns brown immediately, the tawa is ready to go.
Flip the chapati as soon as it puffs/bubbles up on 4-5 places.
Take off the griddle and separate layers. Apply ghee on one side each.
Enjoy with sabji, curry, gravy or make into samosas or cones for snacking. If the rotis are to be stored for some hours, put a cut ginger piece along with the rotis and cover, the rotis will stay soft.
Uses other than as Chapati:
Halve it, roll into a cone, seal it with a wheat flour slurry, fill with your favourite stuffing and deep fry.
Cut 2-3 long strips and use it as samosa patti for crispy small dal or kheema samosas.
Cut and deep fry. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to eat with evening tea.
Have you ever eaten or tried making this parwali chapati?
What other dishes you make out of a chapati? Have you ever heard of chapati poha? Do let me know in the comments below 🙂
I am really happy to see the “Dhungar technique” written and shown by Ms. Yoshita here. We use this technique a lot in our food, be it a simple tempered dal, kebabs or special keema samosas. This smoking technique lends the food a delicate fragrant smoky taste. Please try this technique especially on the kebabs.
Sometimes along with the ghee, we add aromatic spices like cloves so that the meat or whatever is the dish is infused with a delicate fragrance of cloves.
Few things to keep in mind before starting: Dal bukhara is a velvety smooth slow cooked whole black lentils(urad dal) simmered with tomato puree, ginger-garlic paste, butter and cream for hours on low heat. Dal bukhara, a dish quite close to dal makhani, is rather pretty different in many ways. Dal bukhara recipe is much […]
Be it any special occasion like Eid or any get -together, this is one of the dishes that cannot be skipped.
In fact Mutton Yakhni Pulao recipe is a very easy dish to make, Make some Mutton Yakhni Pulao and one sweet dish, some boondi mixed in curd with roasted jeera powder and spices and the party is On. Pair with masala chhaas (buttermilk) or cold drinks and Enjoy.
No hassel of making breads/rotis/parathas/puris. This is a wholesome one-pot meal.
