Millet Roti/phulka

Millets are small-seeded grasses that are hard and grow well in dry zones. They are highly nutritious, non-glutinous and non-acid forming foods. Hence they are soothing and easy to digest. Compared to rice, especially polished rice, millets release lesser percentage of glucose and over a longer period of time, this lowers the risk of diabetes.

When I heard first about this power packed grains in our Foodie group, I did not know anything about its benefits, gradually started my experiments and today I am using this grain almost every day in my cooking, in one form or the other.

Here I have taken pearl millet (bajra) flour and finger millet (ragi) flour. You can take any flour of your choice.


Pearl millet /Bajra flour – 1 cup

Finger millet /Ragi flour – 1 cup

Whole wheat flour – to knead

Water – 3 cups


Oil- 1 tsp


-Take one microwave bowl, pour water, salt, oil and keep it in a microwave for 1 minute. Alternatively, you can use stove top too.

-Now add millet flours, mix and cook. When it looks like porridge, remove from the heat or microwave.

   roti 2

-After it cools a bit, add required amount of whole wheat  flour and knead it further to make a firm dough.

     roti 3

-Now take lemon sized dough, make circular discs like a Chapati by using rolling pin.

-Heat roti tawa, cook these discs on both the sides and hold this into a flame, this will puff like a whole wheat phulka. Stalk these one above the other and keep it in a lined hot case.
