  • Stand mixer for kneading

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour/atta
  • ¾ cup jaggery/gud powdered or ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 tablespoon ghee for the dough or oil if vegan
  • 1 tablespoon cardamom/elaichi powder
  • 1 tablespoon ghee to apply on top of cooked flatbread optional


  • Take water at room temperature in a bowl. Add jaggery/sugar and leave it aside for few hours/overnight
  • Let the jaggery dissolve completely.This will take 2-3 hours.
  • In a bowl,first mix wheat flour and 4 tablespoon desi ghee.
  • Mix it until it starts coming together,add more ghee if required.
  • Pour the jaggery syrup little by little and knead it to a semi-firm dough.
  • Take a handful size dough and with a rolling pin roll it to a thick flatbread .
  • Put it on hot griddle,Cook on lowest possible flame.
  • Flip at regular intervals until brown patches appear on both sides.
  • After removing from tawa,optionally apply a little more ghee over the lolo.


You may replace jaggery/gud with sugar.
To get the nicely shaped flatbread,the butter/ghee added with the flour is important and also the flatbread should be evenly flat so that its cooked evenly on the surface.
