These are the most consumable food items that you can able to include in a chapati company. Now let’s check how to start the chapati business.
Requirements for Chapati and pathiri business
First of all, there are some requirements to start this business. First of all, we need room to establish and set up this business. We didn’t need a big room for this. It is based on your idea. If you are going to start a large production unit you can choose a big room or building. But I prefer a small room at the beginning stage. Later if you want to develop your business you can change your room into a big one.
Machinery for Chapati and pathiri making business
The next element that we want to start this business is machinery. The most essential machinery are three
- Dough mixing machine
- Chapathi making machine
- Chappathi puffer machine
- Packing machine
Dough mixing machine
This machine is used to mix water and chapati or rice powder with water. You also want to add the required salt while mixing. Mixing can be long 10-15 minutes. If the chapati or rice powder will stick to the mixing machine you want to add some water to fix it. After 10-15 minutes of mixing the powder will be converted to a clay model. At this time you can take it and put it into the chapati or pathiri making machine.
In the case of this machinery, you want to change its old grease to the new one when the speed of the machine gets decreased.
Chapathi or Pathiri making machine
The next step is the making of chapati, pathiri. The presser for chapati and pathiri is different. But the machinery is the same. You just want to buy an additional presser. So after completing the procedure in the dough machinery, let’s put the dough into the chapati/pathiri making machine.
After that, each chapati will come out of this machine. At the endpoint of this machine, you want to put a large plait or any equipment to keep the pathiri or chapati coming out from the machine. The next step is puffing the chapati or pathiri. There is also another machinery which will do making and puffing. But it’s the price is higher than the normal machinery
Chappathi/pathiri puffer machine
This is the next procedure. In this procedure, we will bake the pathiri and chapati. You must need a gas cylinder if you are using a manual machine. But in the case of the electric machinery, sometimes the chapati or pathiri will not be baked well. So the customers will not get satisfied. So if you are going to use an electric puffing machine make sure that every chapati and pathiri is baked well.
After the baking procedure, we can put the chapati or pathiri under the fan and above a grill to remove the steam. After 10 minutes you can take it from there for packing.
It is not necessary. But if you use a packing machine it will more professional. After the baking and steam removing process you can pack chapati and pathiri. It is better to make the packs of 10, 20, and 30 pathiri or chapati. If you get a large or any other custom order you can also pack with a particular number of pathiri and chapati.
So these are the different types of machinery used in chapati-making business. While purchasing it approaches more than one machinery manufacturer to get the best deal. Now we can check the price of these machineries.

Where to start chapati making business
This is a very relevant factor that you want to consider while start a chapati and pathiri-making business. I recommend starting this business in a semi-rural area.
The urban area is also best. But in an urban area, there are already many hotels and restaurants. So the people who already go to such hotels and restaurants may not visit your outlet.
The people in the rural area are also may not interested in purchasing food items. Because they are used to eating the food items cultivated by them. But in some cases, you will get customers from an urban and rural areas.
The best area for this business is a semi-urban area. Because the people in this area will purchase the food items from shops occasionally. And also the people who live in flats and the students who live in hostels may buy your chapati and pathiri.
So these are the different types of suitable locations for chapati and pathiri making business. Select the appropriate location by study about the people and market of a particular area.
You need to take a license to start a chapati and pathiri-making company. You can visit your panchayat or nearest Akshaya center to take a license for this business. You must want to take a room for rent to get the license. The room should be clean and hygienic. The panchayath officials will visit your room for verification.
Hire staff to make chapati and pathiri
If you are going to start this business as a small-scale business you didn’t want more staff. You can manage everything with one staff itself
But if you are going to start this business as a large-scale business you must need more than one staff.
- One staff for each chapati, pathiri, porotta making
- One staff for puffing
- One staff for packing and cash collecting
You can manage your large-scale chapati and pathiri-making business with these staff. Now let’s go to the major part of this business which is the total cost. I will give you the average total cost details here
