Whle wheat roti or pulka

Whole Wheat Rotis with extra fiber and protein

Roti made with whole wheat flour is one of the healthy diets in India and is also a staple food in northern India. Whole wheat flour contain good amount of dietary fiber which helps to reduce constipation, lowers blood cholesterol and helps you in losing weight. Here I mention the idea of using wheat bran and wheat germ as ingredients to get extra fiber, protein and minerals. We can apply little oil or ghee on rotis while cooking to get softer rotis and to maintain softness even after a day of making to consume later. But pulkas without oil made on tawa and direct fire should be consumed immediately for better texture.

Mixed flour roti

Multi Grain Roti ~ Multi Grain Flat Bread

Pulka ( whole wheat tortillas with out oil) is everyday meal in my home and that is why I wanted to make them more nutritious by adding different flours. You don’t need to add exact measurement or type of flour mentioned below. Be creative to add any flour you have in your pantry. But adding wheat flour makes life easy in rolling Roti if you don’t have much skill in making Jowar or Bajra or Ragi Roti alone
