Phulkas are an indispensable part of meals in most Indian households. I've tweaked the traditional recipe by adding soya flour to wheat flour with which it is usually made. Do not mix whole soybeans along with whole wheat while grinding it into flour as whole soybeans contain certain anti-nutritional factors that hinder digestion and absorption of vital nutrients. Hence it is advisable to use processed ready-made soya flour available in the market. These phulkas are low cal as they are cooked without any oil or ghee.
