any wheat flour
1-2 pinches of salt
1-2 pinches of sugar
2 tea spoons of ghee
mix with boiling water

Initially use a spoon to mix since you will use boiling water, and then make dough with hand only.

With this even if you make chapathi' s for lunch, it will be soft, not dry at all.

In this way, no need to prepare dough the previous night also. Fresh dough will serve the purpose.

For making soft chapatis you should add milk and some hot oil before kneading the dough.
