Take a bowl and mix all the ingredients in it except the oil that is kept for shallow frying.
With the help of water (as much as required), knead the mixture into a soft and pliable dough.
Divide the dough into 9 to 10 equal portions.
Roll out each portion into a 5" round, and while rolling, sprinkle some flour over each chappati as it helps in the process of rolling.
Place the chappati on a hot griddle and roast it.
Slowly pour some oil to shallow fry and repeat the process for the other side.
Do the same thing with the remaining portions.
