How to make wheat butter chapati recipe / phulka roti recipe with step by step photo recipe. India Bread or roti is an unleavened flatbread which is made in almost every part of India, my home is also not an exception, roti, sabzi ( a dry vegetable dish) and dal are regular staple dishes at home. Rotis are also served with vegetables or paneer curry. Like the form of Gujarati family, phulka roti is a must with all sabzi recipe.

Phulka Roti Recipe

Phulka roti is known as Rotli in Gujarati’s Home. These rotis or flatbreads are made from whole wheat flour and water. Ghee and salt may or may not be added. These phulkas are very healthy too.

Phulka roti recipe which I share here, is an Indian Main Course, which can be eaten with any sabzi or curry recipe like aloo matar, aloo methi, potato-onion sabzi, aloo palak, cauliflower sabzi, brinjal sabzi, palak dal, matar paneer, potato curry, paneer butter masala, etc. While phulka are partially cooked on tawa and then cooked on the direct flame which after puffed up into a ball due to direct flame. Once it puffs up, it is removed from heat and is ready to serve.

The best technique of kneading the roti dough has to be kneaded with proportionate water until soft. And the roti dough also needs some time to rest with covering it with a cloth or a plate. Your rotis will start coming out perfectly round and soft with proper practice. Moreover, I make extra chapati in dinner and used that roti in the form of a tasty Gujarati tea time snack called “vaghareli rotli” coming next day morning tea time. Or you can also make vaghareli rotli at any time. Leftover roti can be used in any dishes like frankie.

Tips for Phulka Roti Recipe

Furthermore, I want to share some suggestions and tips with you for making soft and best phulkas or chapati or roti. Firstly, add water in batches at a time so that you can knead the dough as per your requirements as hard or soft. If you add all the water at once then dough may soft or sticky and difficult to knead.

Secondly, adding oil is helping in making the roti soft so add oil as required quantity after that knead and punch the dough well and cover the dough with a moist cloth. Moreover, turn the flame to high while you place roti on direct flame for puff the roti. In last, while rolling the roti make sure you roll it evenly. The thickness across roti remains the same. It may secure while puffing the roti.

      If your roti became chewy then add more oil in it while kneading the dough, it’s make roti softer. And cook roti on medium to high flame. Lastly you can apply more ghee or butter on roti so your roti turns soft till you eat

      One more my personal suggestions is that if you need more soft roti then add 2-3 tbsp of milk while kneading the dough. It’s keep roti soft.

      Please try again with this ideas and let me know your problem will resolved or not.

      Thank you for your comment Berry..
