Step 1 Peel and finely grate the carrots. Remove the outer layers of onion then grate it. Squeeze the grated carrot to remove the the juice and save the juice.
Step 2 Put the flour, grated carrots, grated onion, salt and oil in a mixing bowl. Mix to form a soft dough adding the carrot water if necessary.
Step 3 Kneed the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Rub the dough with a little oil and wrap in cling film. Leave for about 1 hour
Step 4 Divide the dough into 4 balls. Sprinkle flour on the work surface and roll each ball into a 17cm round. Heat a frying pan on a medium-high heat and dry cook each chapati until it starts to brown then turn over.
Step 5 When cooked, lightly brush with oil, wrap in a tea towel to keep warm.

CHEF’S TIP This recipe uses wholemeal flour which absorbs more water than white flour. Therefore, if you are using more white flour, reduce the amount of water.
