Phulka is plain Indian bread. This is the most common main course at Indian homes. A very filling and healthy food, this is great to pack for office or school.
Time Required: 20 Minutes
2 Cups Wheat Flour
1 tsp Oil (Optional)
Salt to taste
Mix Wheat Flour, Oil, Salt and water to a stiff dough. Cover the dough and let it stand for an hour.
Divide the dough into balls. On a floured surface roll out each of the balls into a circle.
Heat a griddle/tava and put a rolled out phulka on the tava. After about 10 seconds, flip it and roast for a minute. Now hold the phulka with a tong and remove the tava from the fire and put the phulka right on the fire. It will fluff up. Remove immediately from the fire. Repeat the procedure for all the Rotis.
An alternate method of roasting the phulka is to press the phulka with the help of a cloth. The phulka will fluff up.
Remove to a roti basket.
