And you do not want to make the chapati (an Indian bread) yourself because ?
The basic idea is not to press the chapati dough very hard
How do you make the dough without working it ? I find adding oil / ghee to the dough makes it softer and easier to work with. The chapati ends up being soft too. There are many ways to make a chapati. I throw mine into an open fire and roast both sides for 3-4 seconds. It is better and softer than a normal chapati, but nowhere close to the softness of traditional North Indian chapatis. The grain that they use and the oil that accompanies their dough makes a difference; along with the skill that it takes to make a great chapati of course.
I dug into this a couple of times without any positive conclusions. Despite my best efforts, they tend to come out, um, "chewy". Emergency shoe repair kits.
Some seem to recommend yoghurt, but I'm not a fan of spoiled milk - just plain water and flour, maybe a touch of salt and occasionally some ajwain.
Using hot water seems to be about the most promising approach, but it's recommended that when you do pie crusts that you roll them out rather than roll on them because of the effects on the gluten. So that almost certainly applies to chapatis as well.
I have a tortilla press, but it presses out kind of thick, and that doesn't help.
