Chapitas / Naan
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Indian fried bread, great for any cheeses or dips, etc.
1 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
Whisk together the flours and salt in a batter bowl. Add 3/4 cup of the warm water, adding more to make a soft dough. You may not need all of the water. Turn it onto a floured surface and knead 8-10 minutes, adding more flour if necessary until the dough is smooth and elastic. It will remain soft and slightly sticky. Place in a bowl and cover and set in a warm place for 30 minutes. Heat a flat griddle. Divide the dough into 10 balls. Work with one at a time and keep the others covered. With a rolling pin, roll out to about 6 inch diameter. Cook on the hot griddle about 1 minute, turn, and cook about 30 seconds. Remove and brush with ghee and place in a cloth-lined basket. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining dough balls.
