Recipe for how to make Whole wheat parotta Kerala style made with just 100% whole wheat flour. Tamil style godhumai parotta recipe.

While the regular Kerala style Malabar parotta is a very popular recipe on my site, there has always been a lot of requests from you all for whole wheat parottas / Godhumai maavu parotta. Here is my version of parottas made with 100% whole wheat. These parottas are easy to make and comes out super flaky. This recipe has eggs and dairy. If you do not eat eggs / dairy, just skip it and you will still land up with decent whole wheat parottas. These parottas keeps well without drying up after making. A perfect recipe for a weekly indulgence.

Here is how to do Whole wheat parotta.
Take a big bowl and add in the whole wheat flour (atta / godhumai maavu). Also add in the salt, baking powder, sugar, egg and milk.
Note: If you want to make it eggless, just omit the egg. Baking powder is essential for getting the light and flaky texture in this parotta. Do not omit that.

Slowly add water and make it into a soft dough. The consistency should be the same like chapati dough. Knead briefly for two minutes.

Apply a teaspoon of oil to the dough. Cover and keep aside for fifteen minutes.

After the rest, form dough balls the size of a golf ball.

On top of the ghee, sprinkle some flour. Generously sprinkle flour. Gently spread the flour evenly on the disk. This flour will help later on in keeping the parotta layers separate.

Starting from one end, gather the edges and start rolling. Just roll the disk from one end to another. Roll the dough into a log.

Once the disk is rolled into a log, start from one end and roll again to form a spiral.

Tuck the end of the spiral at the bottom so it does not separate later on.

Dust the spiraled dough generously in flour and gently roll again to form a disk. The disks need not be thick. It should be slightly thicker than chapati dough. That is all. So do not roll it very thick. Try to be gentle while rolling and do not press very hard as keeping the layers intact is very important.

    Hi Suguna, this recipe looks great – I can’t wait to try it this week. I cannot have dairy, so can I replace the milk with water?

    Thanks.
    First attempt at parotta, came out well.
    How was it cooked? High or low flame?

      Medium flame. Low flame will dry out the parotta.

    Mam can I skip sugar? Will i taste the sweetness if I add sugar?

      The sugar helps in browning. you wont taste the sweetness. If so particular, sure you may omit it.

    Hi have a doubt – if I am going to half the quantity is it ok to still use egg or should I skip it? What’s the purpose of egg? Just to have an understanding..absolutely ignorant
