To make the Dough

Add salt and a dash of oil to refined flour and mix well. To this mixture pour water and knead as shown in the video. A dough that is kneaded well yields softer flatbreads. Use as much water as needed to form the dough that is soft and supple. Do not use excess water as the dough will become limp and hard to work with.

Once the dough is formed coat it with oil. You can use this dough immediately or keep it to sit for 5 – 10 minutes to allow the gluten to activate.

To roll Phulkas

Divide the dough into equal dough balls. Keep 1/2 cup of flour on your workstation for dusting. Using your hands shape the dough balls to create round, flat thick flatbreads.

Dust the thick flatbread with flour and roll it further to make phulkas. Dry roast the phulka on an earthen tawa on both sides to cook and then flip the phulka directly on flame till it rises and blows up as shown in the video.

Enjoy Indian flatbreads with curries, gravies, or any sabzi of your liking. Phulkas make amazing tortillas, tacos and quesadillas.
