whole wheat bread made from whole wheat flour is healthier than its refined flour counterpart, also has a rustic aroma and flavour, which are thoroughly enjoyable. Freshly-baked 100% whole wheat bread is a delight to bite into, for babies, toddlers, children and adults too!

You can use olive oil instead of butter to get a more authentic aroma , but if that is not available you can always bake atta bread with regular soft butter.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect 100% whole wheat bread. 1. Ensure that the water to which you add the yeast is luke warm. If it is too hot or cold, the yeast will not get activated, and your whole wheat bread will not have the proper texture. 2. Sugar has multiple roles in bread making. One being it acts as a food for yeast and helps in creating carbon dioxide and alcohol. It also enhances the flavour of the bread, retains the moisture content and give a crumbly texture and golden crust to the whole wheat bread. 3. Always bake your whole wheat bread in the middle rack for even cooking. 4. Pre heat your oven 10 minutes before you bake.

In India, packaged whole wheat bread is sadly not made with 100% whole wheat and often mixed with 25% plain flour making it a lighter and unhealthy bread. Hence it’s always better to make your whole wheat bread at home. Nothing beats the joy of baking your own 100% whole wheat bread.

Once baked and sliced, serve the Indian whole wheat bread recipe the way your child likes it – toasted or sandwiched, with grated veggies, cheese, butter and/or homemade jam .

You can transform the whole wheat bread to make delicious sandwiches and toasts like Alfa Sprouts, Tomatoes and Basil Sandwich, Baked Bread Rolls, Baked Corn Open Toast, Cabbage and Carrot Double Decker Sandwich, Cheesy Onion and Chilli Toast, Mushroom and Tomato Snack and many more.

  5. After 10 minutes, open the lid and you can see a frothy layer on top which indicates our yeast has been activated and is ready to use. If you don’t see a creamy frothy layer then discard the yeast and start over again.

  11. Shape the dough into a proper round using both your hands while tucking the edges at the bottom.
  12. Cover it with a damp muslin cloth and keep aside in a warm place for 45 minutes or till the dough is double in size.

   Hi, when the bread is just out of the oven, it remains hard. You need to apply oil or butter, and once it cools down slightly it starts getting soft.
