Madakku chapathi (Layer chapathi)

Malabar a northern part of Kerala is very famous for their hospitality and parties because of these reason they have unique food recipes. One day I tried to count all recipes but I understood that is not possible. There are so many recipes I forgot but the taste is still in my tongue as childhood memory. Some recipes I didn't try yet that all I will try and will post soon.
Madakku chapathi is traditional soft and layered wheat rotti  of Malabar. This one is a special dish for bridegroom because old people don't allow to serve normal oil free chapathi for groom.   Even kids will love to eat this with honey or peanut butter.

Whole wheat flour                :  2 cup
All purpose flour                  :  ½ cup
Salt to taste
Ghee/ oil                               :  2 tbsp

  1. Mix all ingredients together except ghee/oil.
  2. Add enough warm water to make soft dough and knead well until become smooth
  3. Make small balls and flatten it with rolling pin
  4. Spread ghee/oil on it and dust flour
  5. Fold four side to make squire shape and flatten it again (add ghee/oil in each fold)
  6. Heat tawa at medium flame then place one chapathi and cook one
  7. Flip over and add ½ tsp of oil on both side 
  8. Press the centre  with a flat spoon. chapathi will puff up and you can see layer sperates from each other
  9. serve hot with your favourite curry
