My maternal grandmother makes the softest and fluffiest phulkas I've ever eaten.And she makes them so effortlessly that I always thought that it was a breeze making them and boy was I wrong!!!The first time I made them they turned out to harder than the papads!!!!I've come a long way from then but still have a long way to go.My phulkas puffed up beautifully the other day when I made them and 'm here to share them with everyone.I know I know thery are not clear but hey it was in the night and its only so much my 7 yr old loyal camera could do.

What U'll need:

1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
A pinch of salt
Water as required.


Add salt to the whole wheat flour and mix.Add water  very little at a time and make a soft dough but it should not be sticky.Knead the dough for atleast 5-8 mins.Cover it with a wet kitchen towel and let stay for 20 or so mins.When ready  knead the dough again and make small balls and roll them out into discs.In the mean time heat an iron girdle.When hot place a rolled out disc and let it brown a little turn and do the same .Now if u have a gas range place the cooked disc on the flame directly and they will puff up.The phulkas are ready.If u have electric range like me u can do what I did and buy a chapathi or phulka thingie from an Indian store and place the phulka on it and it will puff up.Enjoy!!!!
