benefits of mooli

benefits whole wheat flour

    2.  Diabetic Friendly: Being rich in Magnesium, whole wheat flour  contributes to many health benefits and will improve insulin response by lowering insulin resistance. Excellent for controlling blood sugar levels through the presence of Zinc also.

making half cooked roti

  1. To make the roti dough, you will need a thali called parat, i.e. a stainless steel flour dough kneading plate or deep glass bowl. In this plate the flour won’t spread and fall off and also will be easy to knead the dough. Ingredients required for roti is 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta), 1 tsp oil and a pinch of salt to make 6 rotis. See recipe for roti.
  2. Then add 1 teaspoon of oil. Oil helps to bind the flour and also keeps the rotis soft. 
  3. Then add a pinch of salt, but it’s optional. Salt is to add flavour and taste to the roti, as many people don’t like their rotis bland. 
     
  4. Then add water, taking care to add water little by little as required or else the dough will be sticky and difficult to knead. The quantity of water depends upon the quality of flour. 
     
  5. Keep adding water as required and knead the dough. As you keep kneading the dough you will understand how much more water to add. 
     
  6. Knead and gather the dough from the sides of the parat to form a mass. Add water so that the dough is soft but not sticking to your fingers at all.  
  7. Check the dough for softness and add some water and oil as needed. Punch the dough with your knuckles and keep on kneading for around 2 minutes or until the dough is soft and pliable. The dough for rotis should be soft and not stiff as for puris. Also if the dough is very soft it will be sticky and you will be unable to roll.  
  8. Keep the kneaded dough aside covered with a soft cloth or bowl for 15 to 20 minutes. If you wish you can make the rotis immediately, but I suggest keep the dough aside for some time as it gives a nice texture and the rotis will be softer and more fluffy. 
     
  9. The roti dough can be refrigerated for 2-3 days. The best way to refrigerate the dough is to lightly oil the dough and the bowl. The bowl you are storing the dough should be spacious and should be covered tightly to prevent it from drying. 
     
  10. How to make the rotis
    1. To make roti recipe | chapati recipe | phulka recipe | how to make soft roti | Indian roti | Press the dough with your fingertip, and the dent that your fingers make should almost bounce back. If this doesn’t happen, it means that the dough is too hard, and it can cause the Chapati to be dry. After 20 minutes, divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Take a portion of the dough and roll between your palms and flatten it.  

  11. Using a little whole wheat flour for rolling, start rolling out the dough till it is a thin circle of 125 mm. (5”) diameter. Rolling the roti is not as difficult, start rolling lightly from the centre in a circular motion. If you put a lot of pressure while rolling the roti will not roll nice and round. Use more flour for rolling if you find it difficult to roll, but not much or else the rotis will be hard. 
  12.  Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) on a high flame and when hot, lower the flame and place the roti gently over it. The best way to check if the tava is ready is to drizzle a few drops of water on the tawa.If it sizzles, you are ready to make your roti.
  13. Cook it till small blisters appear on the surface. This should happen in about 15 seconds.
  14. Flip over and cook the other side the same way. Your half cooked roti is ready to be used to make parathas.
  15. Keep aside in a plate.
