Phulka Illustrated












The pictures speak the recipe, so I am not gonna write more on that. Instead I am gonna write some tips.
1. Try to get a real good quality atta, preferrably stone ground.
2. Be careful while adding water during the kneading process. Every drop counts.
3. The more you knead, the softer the rotis.
4. When you lay the roti on the pan, put the heat on high. Watch it carefully, the moment you see bubbles, flip it. Then when you see the bubbles again, you know it's time to puff them.
5. Do not leave the roti on the pan for long.
6. While puffing them directly on fire, make sure you make no hole in it with your tongs.
7. If you want well puffed phulkas, always make sure there is no sort of oil or ghee added to the dough.
