In a bowl, mix together the flour and salt.
Add the warm water little by little and form the dough. ( I heat the water in a microwave safe bowl for about 30 seconds. As I mentioned earlier you can use very hot water also but you have to use a spoon to mix the hot water with the flour and then knead the dough as it cools enough to handle with your hands)
Add the 3 tablespoons of oil to the dough and knead again to form a very smooth and soft dough. Let the dough sit covered for at least 20 to 30 minutes for best results.
Make round balls from the dough, try to make almost equal sized.
Take each one of the balls in your hand, press it gently between both palms to flatten it a bit.
Dust both sides of the flattened ball with some flour and roll it using a rolling pin and board, to form the chapati.
Heat an iron pan or non stick pan, grease it with oil (or ghee or butter), and place the chapati on it.
Cook both sides, by flipping the chapati. You can add little oil, ghee or butter to make the chapati (while cooking the chapati in the pan) to make it more delicious. Chapatis are ready to serve with butter, ghee, yogurt, raita or any chutneys or any side dish as you wish!
