Chapati a type of bread of South Asian origin eaten all over East Africa. It was introduced to the region by Indian workers and immigrants in the early 1900s.

In East Africa, Chapati is made from a dough of wheat flour, water and salt. The dough is rolled out into discs of anywhere between 12 and 20 centimetres in diameter and browned on both sides in a frying pan lightly greased with cooking oil.

Chapatis may be taken as a snack with tea or coffee or as part of meal, eaten with vegetable or meat sauces.
