Whole Wheat flour -1 cup
Salt – a pinch
Tongs for making phulkas
Rolling pin and board
In a bowl, mix together flour and salt using your finger tips. Add lukewarm water little by little and gather the dough with your fingers. Once it comes together, grease your palm with 3-4 drops of oil and knead well. Use your knuckles or heel of your hand for kneading.
Divide the dough into equal sized smooth balls. Keep some wheat flour or rice flour for dusting. Take a dough ball, flatten it with your finger tips, dust flour and using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to form a circle as thin as possible. Thickness should be be uniform on all the sides.
Heat a tava or skillet on medium high heat, once heated, put the rolled out dough on it. Cook for few seconds, until small bubbles start to appear. You do not have to cook the first side for more than few seconds as we will be putting it on direct flame.
Do not loose heart if your rotis do not puff up, they still taste great. Keep practicing and you will succeed.
