I am posting a very basic recipe “Phulka /Roti“, which are the softest of all Indian flat-breads with out the use of any oil. They are made to puff up by putting them on direct flame, which creates an air pocket in between, hence making the bread very soft. It is not only rich in the nutrients and fibers that whole wheat brings along with it, but also low in fat and very light on the stomach.They are the staple in most Indian households and enjoyed on an everyday basis. It is usually accompanied with curries/stir fry/gravy/salad.
Making a perfect phulka is an art. Though the procedure looks pretty simple, to actually get soft and fluffiest all you need is practice.Once you practice and get the hold of it, making phulka on direct flame is a breeze.The secret of making good phulkas boils down to 2 things, mixing the dough and rolling.Well there was a time when i too was struggling with perfect phulkas,but now I can confidently say I’m getting it right yes each time :).Seeing the roti puff up takes phulka / roti making to a whole new level.Ecstasy!!
Follow these steps properly and i assure you making Phulka will never be a challenge for you.
