The Origin and History of Chapati (Roti)

Chapati, widely known as Roti, is a typical staple food in South Asian countries. But, what is the history of Chapati?

There are many stories behind the history of Chapati.

Some say that Chapati came from the Egyptian Indus Valley civilisation 5000 years ago. Others claim it was founded in East Africa and brought over to India.

Traditionally, Chapati is made without salt, giving a bland background to spicy dishes. But, there are many variations of Roti that are found around the world.
