Why make regular chapati when you can make a scrumptious sourdough chapati? A delicious and fun twist on Indian flatbreads, that provide similar results, when dipped in any creamy, spicy, or tangy curry promising a delightful bite. And here’s the recipe for you to try!

  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 6 rotis 1x


  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour or atta
  • 4 tbsp. of sourdough starter discard
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • Warm water
  • A drizzle of oil or ghee


  1. Add whole wheat flour, sourdough starter discard and salt, to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Mix this with a spoon, and you may be able to tell how much water you’ll need just from looking at it.
  3. Similar to making sourdough bread, gradually add water, and knead the dough using one of your hands, while the other keeps the bowl steady.
  4. Roll the dough into a ball, and press the tips of your fingers into the top of the dough. Drizzle a few drops of oil atop the dough, and let it rest for 20 minutes. Your dough should be firm, but soft.
  5. Transfer the dough to a lightfly floured surface, and divide the dough into 6 equal parts.
  6. Dip a ball of dough in flour, and press it flat using your fingertips.
  7. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into an even circle, then set this aside and repeat with the remaining dough balls.
  8. Heat a cast iron pan over medium heat. Gently place the flattened dough ball into the pan, and flip it over once your notice bubbles appearing on its surface.
  9. Once both sides of the chapati are dotted with golden-brown spots, you should get a gorgeous roti puff. Remove it from the heat and place it on a plate. Cover the hot roti with a clean kitchen towel, so that it remains soft.
  10. You can even put the roti on direct flame, for a few seconds.
  11. Serve this with a hot, meaty curry, and enjoy!
