  12. Cook on both the sides. Do not flip the chapathi too many times. I would say, flipping 3 times is ideal. If you wish you can apply ghee or cooking oil while cooking (I don't use). cooking soft chapathi recipe
  13. Take it out and apply little ghee when the excess heat is reduced. Applying ghee will give nice aroma to chapathi and keeps the chapathi soft throughout the day. Serve it with any curry of your choice.cooking soft chapathi recipe
