In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
1 cup chick pea flour
1/3 cup water
2 Tbs. arrowroot powder
1 Tbs. light, cold-pressed oil
Optional: ¼ teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients well. Roll into 1 balls and pat flat. With a rolling pin, roll out pastry-like rounds. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan until very hot. Reduce heat to medium high and heat each round for 1-2 minutes on each side, until warmed and slightly browned. Serve hot or store in the refrigerator.
Chipatis may be eaten hot from the pan, or cold, or lightly toasted. They are wonderful with rice or Indian foods, and they make a good bread substitute for sandwiches. This recipe makes 8-10 chipatis.
