Add 1 cup room temperature or cold water in a bowl and add 2 cups whole wheat flour (atta). Gently mix them with a spoon and let it soak for 10 minutes (sometimes I leave it for 30 minutes).
If needed, add more water little by little. Knead with your hand until the dough becomes elastic and pliable. Don’t over do it.
Roll it into a large ball and layer it with oil to prevent dryness
Place it a container ( with a fitting lid) which is also sprayed with cooking oil
Test: Press your index finger into the dough that’s kneaded and the shape that you created should stay like that. It should not bounce back. Please try it this way and share your thoughts with me.
