Chapati / Indian  bread or Roti  is a dish which is made in almost every part of India…!!
To make this healthy chapatti, we use to purchase store-bought  Multi-grain Atta flour.  Recently, I tried to prepare the multigrain Atta flour at home.  
Well, fresh flour is …fresh...!
It’s amazing the difference in taste, you’ll notice when you eat chapati / roti/ phulkas and other goodies made from flour that has been freshly ground.   
There is no need to worry, if the store bought flour is a little on the old side and is likely to be with lot of maida and other things mixed in it. 
Here’s the proportion we used to prepare  homemade  Multi Grain  Atta,  which is totally adulteration free & healthy on a whole..:)
Check out  here  to make  soft  &  fluffy  chapathi  with easy step by step photo tutorial..!

  19. Hi, This article is really helpful. I do have one doubt, can you please tell me why do you suggest to roast the grains first? Is it okay if I use them to make the flour without roasting?

    1. Hy Butterfly,
      Roasting the grains gives wonderful aroma to the flour while grinding and enhances d taste while preparing chapati. I suggest to go with roasting method.

  20. I think in spite of adding maize we should add black chana . For diabetic and for calories conscious person this combination is ideal. I love your idea about roasting. ... thanks dear
