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.

Dough for whole wheat bread

  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.

Not tried yet, I have to wait for the pizza oven to cool a bit. Would it be impolite to ask for the recipe to be given in metric weights (not volumes). The recipe is seen world wide and96% of the worlds population use the metric system. only the USA and Liberia and Burma use cups and spoons.

   Hi Vani, Active yeast is ideally directly added to the dry ingredients and also add an extra 10 to 15 minutes to the rising time. We have not tried this recipe using active yeast. You can try and share with us your feedback.

we tried it for arround 6 times. we did experiments with different quantity of water. But all time it become densed and not spongy. Hard to recognise if it is bread or something else. I read so many articles about this problem. but all suggest to add white flour. I dont know how you do that.

   Hi Dipesh, As this is a pure whole wheat flour bread with no maida added at all, it will be a little dense but at the same time it is soft, if you do not want it dense reduce the whole wheat flour by 1/4 cup and add 1/4 cup of plain flour. Happy Cooking !!
