Phulkas

What should I say about Phulkas?

Completely oil free chapathis.I don't even add a drop of oil while kneading the dough also
Its very good for diabetic people and for weight watchers
Apply butter / ghee while serving it to children
To make phulka on Tawa see this link Tawa Phulka


Ingredients
  • Whole Wheat Flour / Multigrain Wheat Flour - 2 cups
  • Water - around 3/4 cup (rough estimation only)
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon or more
Method
Kneading the Dough
Please refer to this link Dough for detailed explanation of kneading the dough with pictures
  • 1. Mix wheat / multigrain flour and salt in a large bowl
  • 2. Make a small hole / well in the center and add little water in it
  • 3. Knead the dough by sprinkling water little by little and beat the dough 5 times
  • 4. Cover the dough and leave it for 30 minutes
Alternatively you may see this link for Kneading Roti Dough with pictures

Preparation of Phulkas
  • Now divide the dough into small balls
  • Roll out each and every dough flat using a rolling pin.(If it is not in circular shape use a sharp lid - dabba mudi as a mold).Use flour for dusting 
  • Heat a Tawa and when it is hot place the rolled phulka on it.You will see bubbles appearing
  • Carefully flip the phulka into the open flame directly on both the sides.You may use a griddle for this .Make sure it is not burnt.burnt. Phulka will puff up as seen in the pic below
