    4. Knead the flour in a smooth dough using one and half cup water.

    11. Roll the balls into a round shape or oval shape chapati.

    12. Make sure you roll the balls slightly thick.

    13. Keep these rolled discs covered loosely for 10 minutes more.

    14. Now sprinkle some loose flour on the oven mitten and then place the rolled bread over it and bake at the same temperature for 7 to 9 minutes.

    15. The baking time can vary depending upon the thickness of the bread and the kind of oven you are using.

    16. Once the pita bread puffs up nicely and turns slightly golden in colour, remove them and keep it aside.
