   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/4   c            Durum flour
      1/2   ts           Sea salt
    1       tb           Canola oil
      2/3   c            -Very warm water
 
   Combine flours and salt in a large mixing bowl.
   
   Mix in oil and water to form a stiff dough, adding
   more water if necessary. Remove dough from bowl and
   knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about
   5 minutes.
   
   Return dough to bowl, cover with a towel and set aside
   in a warm place for one hour.
   
   Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and
   divide into 14 equal portions.  Roll each piece into a
   ball and cover with a damp towel.
   
   Heat an ungreased griddle or large frying pan over
   medium heat.  Working with one ball of dough at a
   time, flatten it, then roll into a 6 circle, using
   only enough flour to keep dough from sticking.  When
   griddle is hot, pick up dough, shake off excess flour
   and place it on a hot pan.  Cook until brown spots
   appear, about one minute.  Flip dough over and cook on
   other side.  (Chapati may puff up while cooking.)
   
   Cover and place in a warm oven while cooking remaining
   chapatis.
