    I buy the finished chapatis from local store where they make them and then store them frozen in a plastic zip bag. I reheat using the toaster setting in toaster oven but you could also use just a regular toaster. They come out very nice this way.

    I too follow the same method as Shanvy's. The rotis are as good as fresh

    Yes, even I used to reheat chapatis for 5-10 sec , depending upon the number of chapatis, but have to consume quickly.

    Ask your maid to store the chapatis in the fridge when they become room temperature. store the chapatis in a air tight box or even in your tiffen box which you are going to take for office. ok?

    The next day you can take the box as it is and at the lunch time you can heat it in MW.They will be fresh and soft. try and give me a feed back :)

    Yes, even I reheat Chapatis, but I noticed that if you reheat it by covered in something like tissue paper or thin clean cloth it is better for health. I sprinkle some water on the tissue paper and it has to be consumed within very less time, it is as fresh as it was while cooked.
