Chapati, pronounced [chuh-pah-tee] is unleavened flat bread. It is a staple food served at most meals in East Africa, (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda). This fried bread is from South Asia and also found in Central Asia and the Horn of Africa. This bread is used as an eating utensil, as well as a bread. You tear off pieces of it to use to pick up other foods.
My granddaughter, Tabitha “Tabi” visited Kenya with her friends. They were taught to make the bread by the family they stayed with. When Tabitha returned home, she shared with me the process and recipe that they used in Kenya. Chapati, has many variations depending on who makes it and where they live. This version uses a blend of wheat flour and corn flour.
