Phulka / Roti

No meal is complete without Roti / Phulka in many Indian homes. These are healthy, soft and delicious to eat.
 It is not at all difficult to make. I learnt the art of making soft phulka and puffing it on direct flame from my mother. My kids love to see the way it puffs and like it to eat when it is hot and smeared with ghee J
Prep Time
10 Minutes + Dough resting time
Cooking Time
15-20 Minutes
10-12 Phulkas
Wheat Flour
2 Cups
A little
As Reqd (¾ cup approx.)
1 Tsp.
As reqd.
1.     In a mixing bowl add wheat flour and salt. Mix well with your fingers.
2.     Add water little by little and knead the dough smooth and soft (should not be sticky)
3.     Smear a little oil on the dough and cover it. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
4.     Knead the dough again after the resting time. Divide the dough to equal small portions and set.
5.     Roll these small potions with the help of a rolling pin and dusting some dry flour to a round shape. The phulkas should neither be too thick nor too thin.
6.     Heat skillet (tava). Put the rolled circle on the tava and cook till some bubbles appear. Now flip the phulka the other side and cook the same way (till some bubbles appear).
7.     With the help of tongs turn the phulka and cook on direct flame and allow it to puff. As soon it puffs turn the tong and cook the other side too on the direct flame for just 2-3 seconds. ( There should be some brown spots on both the sides)

8.     Take it off and smear/ apply some ghee on to the phulka. 
9.     Relish hot hot phulka with any of your favorite curries.
