why do chapati or puri swells up when cooked?????

The chapati dough has water in it which on heating turns into steam.
The two surfaces of the Chapati dries and harden quickly on heating while moisture remain trapped inside which is then converted to steam on continued heating and swells up Chapati on further expansion. It is the steam which is getting filled in the chapati.
