A chakla is an Indian kitchen utensil. It is a flat, usually circular board used with a belan (an Indian style rolling pin), for rolling kneaded dough into chapatis, the round unleavened flatbread. It is commonly made of various types of stone or wood. The weight adds to the stability, and reduces slippage during rolling.
