Want to learn how to make Indian flatbread from scratch in just minutes? 

Whole wheat flatbreads that are thin and puffed (Phulka Roti) or stuffed (Paratha) are very popular in the Indian subcontinent. Phulka’s are eaten along with tasty main dishes. Paratha’s can be stuffed with potato, seasonal vegetables, leafy greens and eaten as a full meal with some tomato chutney.
