  • 1 1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp to knead if dough is too sticky Might not be needed
  • 3/4 to 1 cup of water and milk in 50:50 ratio
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon Sugar
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp garlic butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Green coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • To brush- 2 tablespoon milk
  • To brush the ready bread- 1-2 tablespoon melted butter


  • Add sugar to the milk and water mixture. Heat it to lukewarm. Sprinkle the yeast gently. Keep aside for about 10 minutes. It will bloom. Take the atta in a big plate or dish. Add the salt.
  • Add the frothed yeast liquid to the flour. Mix it up gently. Start kneading for about 12-15 minutes. Add The 2 tablespoon oil while kneading.
  • If the mixture is bit dry add 1-2 tablespoon of milk. The flour will be very sticky at first but will come together on kneading. Keep it in an oiled dish. Cling wrap and keep for proofing in a warm place.
  • Make the garlic masala in the meantime. Heat up two tablespoon garlic butter. Add the chopped green coriander leaves. Keep aside. Depending on the weather the dough will swell up in 1-2 hours.
  • Gently punch it once. Make 18-19 small equal size balls. Mine were 15 grams each. Take each ball and stretch up to make 2-3 inches diameter rounds.

  • Keep it undisturbed in a warm place for proofing. Meanwhile preheat the oven , with both rods on at 175 degrees for 10 minutes. In about 30 minutes the petals will have bloomed up to double.
  • Brush all over with milk. Bake for about 12- 15 minutes. Increase temperature to 200 degrees for the last 2-4 minutes to get browning effect on top. Remove and apply melted butter all over to get a good shine.
  • Be careful as all ovens are different and one needs to eyeball a bit. Serve hot.


Ovens often behave erratically ( mine did…!! ) so keep an eye on at all times.
Can stuff grated cheese as well to get garlic- cheese flavor
