Chapati Dondo - Kitui Flour Mills Limited

Step 1

To make the chapati: First make the dough by mixing together flour, oil, salt and water. Knead for 4-5 minutes. Let rest for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Take some dough in your palms, enough to fill your fist. Roll into a ball and lightly press together with your palms. Dust your board with some flour and place the dough on it.

Step 3

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a round shape of 1/2 cm thickness. Brush some oil on the surface of the dough and sprinkle flour. Roll the dough into a long rope and fold such that it looks like a coil.

Step 4

Press down to make it flat, sprinkle some more flour and roll again into a circle about 1/2 cm thickness.

Step 5

Place the chapati on a heated dry pan. Once you start to see bubbles form over the surface, flip it over. Brush some oil on the chapati and flip over again. Repeat until both sides are cooked.

Step 6

For Beans: In a sufuria, heat the oil, fry the onions as you add turmeric powder. Add the crushed tomatoes and salt and stir.

Step 7

Add the Njahi, water and coconut milk to the mixture and stir. Let it simmer for 25mins.

Step 8

Garnish the stew with coriander (Dhania) leaves.
