Firstly in a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour.
Add salt and mix well.
Add oil onto the flour and mix it well with the flour.
Add water gradually and knead the flour.
Knead it into a soft, smooth and pliable dough.
Add oil onto the dough and knead it again with fingers and hand to get a soft dough or give good punches to the dough.
Cover the dough with a muslin cloth and rest it aside for about 15 minutes.
Once the dough is rested, knead it again and a smooth texture is observed when the dough is touched.
Divide the dough into small equal sized portions.
Take each portion and make round balls out of it.
Use a rolling pin and board.
Onto the board dust some wheat flour.
Take a round portion of the dough and place it on the flour dusted area.
Start rolling out the dough until we get a round or circular disc like shaped roti.
The shape of the phulka should not be too thick nor thin.
Heat the tawa/skillet.
Take the roti in your hands and place it on the tawa.
Cook the bottom side for few seconds on medium flame.
When slight air bubbles appear at the top flip the roti and cook the other side very well.
Lift the phulka roti with the help of pair of tongs, flip it and place the roti directly on the flame.
The side which was cooked for few seconds should be facing the flame.
Once the roti is placed on the flame, it begins to puff up.
Immediately take the roti out on a plate.
Similarly, continue the same procedure for rest of the dough balls and make phulkas.
Place the rotis on a plate.
If needed apply ghee/butter.
Serve hot with veg stir fries or veg curries.
