Storing chapatis
Line a bowl with cotton towel. Place the cooked chapati on the bowl and cover with a lid. Chapati will stay beautifully soft for a long time. The steam from the hot chapatis provide a moist environment that keeps them really soft without drying out. The lid may sweat with moist steam. Try to wipe them off once in a while when transferring the cooked chapatis from the hot pan to the bowl.
