A type of unleavened traditional flat bread of India made with chapati flour (atta), which is a very finely ground whole-wheat flour. There are many variations of chapatis such as rotlas or rotis, parathas, and pooris or puris, but the bread known simply as chapati is the flattest of the different varieties and is usually formed into a round shape that is 5 or 6 inches in diameter. Chapatis are cooked on a griddle with no oil or fat, but are occasionally brushed with ghee or butter after they are cooked. The chapati is most often used to scoop up other foods eaten with the fingers during a meal and is usually served with curries and other spicy dishes. Chapati is also known as khakhara.
