Phulka (Indian Flat Bread)

Chapatis or phulkas is a staple food in many parts of India. These rotis get their name Phulkas because they swell up with steam while being cooked.


1 cup Wheat flour.

1 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

Ghee for brushing.


Combine flour,oil and salt in a bowl and knead into a semi soft dough adding enough water.

Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.

Roll out a thin roti using dry flour.

Put phulka on the hot tava. Cook until  small bubbles start to form. Flip and cook the other side for about 30 seconds until small bubbles form.

Take the phulka off the tava and turn the heat to medium, and put the phulka directly on the flame. It should balloon into a spherical shape and puff up.

Remove from fire and brush with ghee.

Serve hot with sabji of your choice

Happy Cooking !!!
