Tawa Phulka / Roti

Phulkas means "Puffed Roti" and are made in open flame / fire but it can be done on a Tawa incase if we are using an Induction Stove or Electrical Gas Stove
Look out for making Phulkas in open flame in this link Phulkas

  • Whole Wheat Flour / Multigrain Wheat Flour - 2 cups + little for rolling / dusting
  • Water - around 3/4 cup (rough estimation only)
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon or more
  • Butter - for greasing (only for Kids)
Step 1 - Preparing dough
  • Knead the dough as per the instructions given in Kneading Roti Dough
  • Let the dough rest for 20 - 30 minutes

Step 2 - Phulkas
  • Heat a tawa - non stick / iron
  • Meanwhile take a portion of the dough and roll it cylindrical
  • Pluck out small equal sized balls from this 
  • Take one ball at a time and flatten it with palm.Dust it with Atta
  • Roll it out into a thin roti using a rolling pin.Sprinkle little atta while rolling
  • Transfer this into pre heated tawa.Within a minute small bubbles will start appearing as seen in the picture below
  • Turn it on to the other side carefully.I use my hands only no ladle but you can using ladle also
  • Now use a napkin cloth and slightly press the roti in circular motion
  • Roti will puff up as seen 

This is Tawa Phulka.Serve hot with any side dish
You may grease with butter while giving it to children
