    We were taught how to make the perfect Indian Chapati (a puffed up flat bread) in our McLeod Ganj cooking class. The dough is cooked for a while on a flat surface, then put directly on the flame, which makes the bread puff up like a balloon. The teacher made it look easy, as shown in the video below.


    OK. Looks like a simple thing to do, right?




    It’s taken me three months of thrice weekly attempts to get it right and as you can tell from the video below, they still look nothing like the beauties our teacher made (she also didn’t flip the things off the stove).


    And the worst part is we leave soon for five more months of traveling. I’m sure I’ll forget how I did this and it’ll be back to chapati-puff square one.
