Aviary Photo_131653609101378332Recipe Description: Multi grain flour is very useful to lose weight. Instead of buying the ready made multigrain flour, I prefer preparing this at home. Please follow the below ratios of different grains to get the perfect multi-grain flour.


For the flour

  • Wheat (Gehoon): 1 kg
  • Bengal Gram (Chana dal): 50 g
  • Oats: 50 g
  • Corn Kernel Grains (Makai ka dana): 50 g
  • Pearl Millet (Bajra): 25 g
  • Sorghum (Jowar): 25 g
  • Finger Millet (Ragi): 25 g
  • Soy Bean: 25 g

For chapati

  • Multi grain flour: 2 cups for 6 chapatis
  • Salt: ½ teaspoon
  • Water: ¾ Cup or as required
  • Oil / Butter / Ghee: 1 teaspoon and as required for greasing


For the flour

  • Separately grind all the grains and then in a big container mix it all nicely.
  • You may buy the grinded powders of the grains and then mix them in the same ratio as mentioned above.
  • You may grind in more amounts and save it for later. I usually multiple each grains’ amount by 10. Then mix all and save it in a big container for daily use.

For chapati

  • For 6 chapatis, take 2 cups of flour in a bowl.
  • Add salt and mix well.
  • Using water, knead a soft dough.
  • Add oil and knead again.
  • Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll into balls.
  • Roll each ball into 6-inch diameter circle.
  • Heat Tawa and place the chapati on the tawa
  • Flip the chapati after 30 seconds
  • If you want you can grease both sides with little oil/ghee or butter.
  • Cook until both sides are evenly done with golden brown spots (not black).
  • Serve hot, or, keep them in a casserole or wrap them up in a kitchen towel or napkin to serve later.
