To begin making the Spicy Yogurt Chapati recipe, In a large saucepan/vessel, add yogurt, jeera, chilli paste, coriander, salt and oil.
Whisk everything until smooth and lump-free. Add 1/2 cup of water and mix it all together.
Now bring this to a gentle boil and lower the flame and pour the wheat flour to the centre as much as possible and let it cook on a low flame for approximately 4 to 5 minutes.
Turn of the flame and vigorously mix this with a wet wooden stick or a spatula until this mixture comes together. Should take about 2 minutes.
Keep it covered until it slightly cools down and until you can handle the mixture with your hands.
Knead it thoroughly for 5 to 6 minutes and divide the mixture into 10 equal portions.
Now knead each of these balls for 20 seconds and shape it into pedas (round flatten balls).
Roll the pedas into chapathis by dusting some wheat flour and roast simultaneously or roll all of them and stack them on top of each other by spreading some flour between each chapathi.
And roast on a hot tava on both sides by smearing some oil or ghee.
