Chapati Bread

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
Oil (or butter)

Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Add enough water to make a stiff dough. Knead well.  Roll the dough onto a floured board and make a thick circle.  Brush with oil or butter.  Knead.  Repeat this process 2 or 3 times.  Divide the dough into four or five balls and roll into flat circles.  Heat a frying pan over medium heat and brush with oil.  Fry each piece of chapati until golden brown on both sides.  Serve hot or cold with stew or sauce.
