Phulka Recipe | How to make soft Phulka recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Phulka is Indian flat bread made with wheat flour and cooked directly on flame.  Cooking directly on flame allows it to puff up and makes it soft. It is similar to chapati but cooked directly on flame using no oil. Key to making soft phulkas is kneading the dough. Knead dough nicely to make it soft and pliable. Cooking directly on flame comes by practice and we need to roll the dough evenly with uniform thickness.

Phulkas are usually smaller than chapati since we need to roll them according to the size of the burner.  You can apply some oil or ghee after cooking the phulkas to make it extra soft. Finally I have shared some tips in the notes section. It stays soft for longer and can be taken during travel or lunch box. Serve it with any gravy of your choice. I served it with simple cauliflower capsicum curry. This week I am going to share thali featuring Indian flat breads.

Notes

Add water gradually while making dough as amount of water depends on the wheat flour.

Dough should be soft and pliable and not too sticky.

You can use milk while kneading to make it more soft.

Apply pressure and knead the dough. You can use stand mixer to roll the dough instead of manual kneading.

Roll them uniform on all sides. otherwise roti will not puff up.

Resting time, kneading and rolling is the key to make soft phulkas.

Roll them in smaller size so it exactly fits the stove burner. Otherwise it may not puff up fully.

Carefully use tongs to remove the phulka
