I have given some tips and tricks for bread baking if you are a beginner- Please refer to my post BASIC WHITE BREAD | DIY


3 cups Whole Wheat Flour/Atta

1 tsp salt

1 tsp granulated sugar(or honey)

2 tsp gluten powder

1 tsp instant yeast

2 tbsp olive oil

1&1/2 cup warm water (or half & half milk and water)


Mix flour, salt, sugar, yeast and gluten powder. Now add water and form a smooth dough.

Now knead the dough using 2 tbsp oil for around 7-8 min.

Leave the dough at a warm place for 90 min ( 30 mins more in winters) until the dough is doubled.

After the dough had doubled, punch down the dough. Knead for another min.

Flatten the dough in rectangle and start rolling making sure to pinch the edges.

Place in your bread making greased pan. Leave for another 30 mins to rise.

Preheat the oven for 10mins. Bake at 180C for 35 mins. Leave in the pan to cool for 5 mins. Then remove from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

Enjoy your guiltless bread.

    1. Thanks sheshma for stopping by. Normal atta or wholewheat flour(of which we make chapati) is a dense flour and after kneading it will be a brick of bread. For that reason extra gluten is added to make a good loaf of bread. Its perfectly safe. Here in India its difficult to get bread flour hence I add separately. You can get it in shops where baking related products are sold.
