Phulka or pulka is another commonly made, easy to make Indian flat bread roti. It is a favorite of those watching their fat intake as there is no oil added as in chapatti. It is a no fat, low calorie version of chapati. It should be eaten hot.


Whole wheat flour  – 1 cup
Water    – ½ cup

1. Put flour in a large bowl with half the water.
2. Blend the two together until it holds.
3. Beat and knead well until it forms a compact ball.
4. Knead dough until it is smooth and elastic and set aside for 30 minutes
5. Knead and divide dough into 4 to 6 parts.
6. Roll each ball into  flat circles
7. Heat an ungreased skillet. Put phulka on it, and let it cook for about 1 minute (The top should just start to look dry and small bubbles should just start to form).
8. Turn and cook the second side for 2/3 minutes until small bubbles form.
9. Turn again and cook the first side pressed lightly with a towel. It should puff.
10. Serve warm (maybe slightly buttered).
11. Since the rolled out chapatti’s will dry out if they are left to stand while cooking the others, it is advantageous to roll them out individually before cooking them
