Rich, layered chapatis that will want you craving for more


  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Kentaste Coconut Cream
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Water


    1. Heat the water and vegetable oil until boiling. Set aside
    2. Add the all purpose flour and teaspoon of salt in a large bowl. Pour in the coconut cream (The coconut milk adds a very delicious flavour and aroma to your chapati)
    3. Whisk in the coconut cream in the flour until the mixture is well combined
    4. Take the hot water and vegetable oil mixture and pour in little by little into the flour
    5. Since the water is too hot use a wooden/ metal spoon to mix the mixture. Keep mixing and testing with your hand to find out whether the mixture has cooled enough to handle with your hands
    6. Once the mixture cools, use your hand to knead the dough
    7. Once the dough is well kneaded, make a well in the center and pour in some vegetable oil. Continue kneading your chapati dough
    8. Knead the dough until it is soft but pliable and it starts to come off the sides of the bowl
    9. Cover your dough with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for 30 minutes. This gives the dough time to rest and the gluten to become easier to work with
    10. Pinch the dough and form little dough balls and place them aside
    11. Spread some flour on the surface and roll out one of the chapati doughs
    12. Take a tablespoon of vegetable oil and spread on the rolled out dough. Make a slit from the center of the round dough to the end
    13. Start rolling over the edge of the chapati dough
    14. Roll all the way to the other end. Until if forms a cone like shape and then tuck the two bottom and top ends into the middle
    15. You will end up with a smooth round ball. Repeat until all the rolled dough are oiled and rolled into round smooth balls
    16. Take one of the dough and roll it into a perfectly round shape. Heat a skillet/pan and place one of the circular chapati dough on it. Let it cook for a few minutes until slight bubbles form at the top
    17. Flip the chapati so that the second side cooks slightly as well
    18. Spread a tablespoon of vegetable oil on the first side of the chapati and flip it over
    19. Spread vegetable oil on the second side, flip it and let it cook until brown patches form at the top
    20. Remove from the heat and place on a plate and cover with a kitchen towel/paper to keep warm as you finish the rest of the chapati
    21. For the beans: Put in a sauce pan and warm through. Add spices and salt to your taste
    22. Enjoy!
