Chapati/Roti/Indian Flat bread/Phulka

Chapati is Indian flat bread also known as roti which is common food for Northern region of India where wheat flour dough is made into flat shaped roti.Chapati is my first disaster in cooking :p :p .My father never complains about any dish which i prepare. But he could not tolerate the roti which i prepared for the first time ,it came out like so hard that he was not able to chew ;).And the funniest part was when i was engaged he told his favorite food was roti at that moment i was speechless…………….. :p :p.Everybody told to make dough soft add warm milk ,oil  but after various attempts  i realized that roti  comes soft based on kneading and quantity of water you add.
