Muthiya looks yummy .....I wanted to know can i use normal Wheat flour( I use Sujata Brand) instead of Whole wheat flour?
and
Is the whole wheat flour same as Wheat Ladoo flour that is available at India store?

Ami, you know what? I used ordinary chapati flour, and it worked very well.

Hi, thanks for the wonderful recipe. The only alteration i made was the soda............added only a pinch and still the muthiyas were light and did not become hard as i had feared. Otherwise everything else was perfect.Thx

Hi, will this work without millet flour? I have brown chappati flour, sooji, and besan, but I don't have millet flour. Can I leave it out? (Also, what is millet flour in hindi?)

Thanks

millet flour is 'bajara no lot'. it will be fine without it.
