To Make Phulka

Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Number of Servings: 4-5 persons


2 cups - wheat flour
Warm water for kneading

1. Firstly in a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour, salt and mix it well 

2. Add warm water gradually and knead it to get a soft dough or give good punches to the dough.

3. Cover the dough with a muslin cloth and rest it aside for about 15 minutes.

4. Once the dough is rested, knead it again 

5. Divide the dough into small equal sized portions. Take each portion and make round balls out of it.

6. Use a rolling pin and board. Onto the board dust some wheat flour. Take a round portion of the dough and place it on the flour dusted area.

7. Start rolling out the dough until we get a round or circular disc like shaped roti. The size of the phulka should not be too thick or thin.

8. Heat the tawa/skillet. Place the roti on the tawa.

9. Cook the bottom side for few seconds on medium flame.

10. When slight air bubbles appear at the top flip the roti and cook the other side very well.

11. Lift the phulka roti with the help of pair of tongs, flip it and place the roti directly on the flame. The side which was cooked for few seconds should be facing the flame.

12. Once the roti is placed on the flame, it begins to puff up. Immediately take the roti on a plate. 

13. Apply ghee/butter. Serve hot.
