Wheat Parotta

Starting this month's blogging marathon with Kid's friendly lunch box dishes.

Kerala Style Whole Wheat Parotta Recipe is an easy way to consume a parotta without feeling guilty about increasing the calorie. Parotta is one of the famous bread in Kerala which is eaten mainly with Kadale Curry or Egg Curry or with some spicy non-veg curry. This would be a good kids lunch box recipe. Kids like the egg curries and prefer any type of bread with them. But they of-course need varieties.

So I find this wheat parotta very different. Unlike the parotta made of all purpose flour, wheat parottas can be eaten cold. We don't get that rubber feeling. Kerala type parotta is basically a bread which is flaky and has many layer within. This is the result of rolling it thinly and then then folding it several times and then stretching it so that it forms a long thread like dough. It is then folded into a ball and rolled thin.


Whole Wheat flour - 2 cups 
Ghee - 1 tbsp (for dough)
Milk - 1/2 cup 
Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon 
Water - as required ( Lukewarm)
Ghee or oil  - 5 tbsp (to brush)
Salt - to taste


  • To begin making the Kerala Style Whole Wheat Parotta Recipe , in a mixing bowl put flour, 1 tablespoon ghee, milk, sugar, salt and sufficient lukewarm water and make a hard dough.
  • Cover it and keep it aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions and roll them into balls. Apply some oil on the balls and cover it. Keep it aside for another 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Spread a little oil or ghee on the table top. Place ball on it and roll it with the help of a rolling pin into thin sheet.
  • Now apply some ghee or oil on the rolled sheet and dust it with the little refined flour.
  • Make small pleats and roll into a round ball. Do the same with the remaining balls. Cover it and leave it aside for 5 minutes.Now take the rested balls and roll like chapati.
  • Heat non-sticky tawa and place the rolled chapati on it.Drizzle little ghee or oil and cook it from both sides until lightly brown and crisp.
Kerala type whole wheat parotta is ready!!
