How to Store Chapatis and Keep them Fresh


Many Kenyans I know love chapatis, and are a favorite dish in many households. But do you know how to keep them fresh? Fellow mom Santina Nyaga knows how to make good chapatis and knows how to store them well, such that they remain soft and fresh. Santina, a mother of three says:

“The trick to keeping them in the freezer and having them taste as fresh as when you made them is to wrap them in cling film, then add foil as an extra wrapping. This works perfectly well for me on those days when we are late in preparing dinner, and all I have to do is come up with stew since the chapati’s, when presented to my family, will still be as fresh as when they were made. This is a time saver!


How about you? How do you keep your chapati’s fresh?
