Whole Wheat Indian Bread- Chapati/ roti

Whole Wheat Flour : ( From Wiki)
Wheat Grain is one of the healthy grain.
Whole wheat flour is more nutritious than refined white flour, although in a process called food fortification, some micronutrients are added back to the white flour (required by law in some jurisdictions). Fortified white wheat flour does not, however, contain the macronutrients of the wheat's bran and germ (especially fiber and protein). Whole wheat is a good source of calciumironfiber, and other minerals like selenium
Nutrition Facts Of Whole Wheat Flour:

 The roti or chapati made out of regular, bleached and enriched atta is not so healthy. Whole wheat flour contains good amount of fiber that is very good for diabetic patients.

Note: The main Drawback of this atta is it's life period, It cannot stay for many days like refined one. So, always change atta atleast once a month.

Ingredients for whole wheat flour chapati/roti:
Whole wheat flour:2cups
Maida/all purpose flour-2ts
Salt to taste
Water for mixing dough
vegetable oil-1/4cup


  • Take whole wheat flour + all purpose flour +salt and mix them thoroughly.
  • Now add 2ts of oil and yogurt (addition of these yields soft roti) and mix well. 
  • Add the adequate amount of water to knead the dough. The dough should be soft. just like chapati/roti dough.
  • Keep this aside for 15min by covering it with damp cloth.
  • Now make the dough it to small equal size balls.
  • Roll each ball just like roti and roast it on a pan by applying vegetable oil on both sides.
  • The healthy roti's are ready to serve.

Hope you all like my recipe :) 
MY question is:
Do you make these kind of roti's? & Do you have any tip for soft roti's except adding oil/yogurt?


  1. I add yogurt too and set aside for a min of 30 mins...

  6. I've never made these but, buy them for pizza...nice thin crust!

  7. I add oil and knead the dough for 7 to 10 mins and rest the dough for a min of 15 mins.. while cooking, I never use a spatula, I press (use a kitchen towel) and turn it regularly until the roti puffs up.. yields super soft rotis.. I will try to give step-by-step pics when I do next time..

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
