100% Whole Wheat Bread Recipe / Wheat Bread Recipe / Brown Bread Recipe

Whole Wheat Bread are my absolute favourite. But store bought breads have maida in them and they are never made with whole wheat flour. I already have a wheat bread recipe, but this is another version which is more fluffier than that..

Hope you will like this and let me know if you try it..

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Resting Time : 2 to 2.30 hours
Baking Time : 20 to 25 mins


Whole Wheat Flour / Atta - 3 cup
Dry Yeast - 1.5 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar / Honey - 1 tblspn
Butter / Oil / Ghee  - 2 tblspn
Unsour Curd / Yogurt  - 2 tblspn
Warm Water - 1 1/4 cup


Take yeast in a bowl, sprinkle sugar over it and add some warm water. Set aside for 5 mins till the yeast is activated.

Now take flour in a bowl, add salt, curd, butter in a bowl. Add in yeast water and normal water and mix well to form a dough.

Knead it for 5 mins till it is smooth. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 hour till double in size.

Now knead it back and shape into a log. Place it in a oiled loaf pan, cover and let this rise for 1 hour.

In the last 10 mins, preheat the oven to 220 Degree C.

Now make some slashes over it the loaf, this is optional.

Bake it for 20 to 25 mins.

Remove it and let it cool for 5 mins, now remove it and let it cool completely. Slice and serve.


1)Activating yeast before adding is important. The yeast should turn foamy. Then add it to the flour. If the yeast didn't foam up then dont add it to flour. The dough wont rise.

2) If you use instant yeast, then you can add it straight to the wheat flour. Dont need to activate it separately.

3)Don't over bake it, if you do then the bread will get hard.

4)You can add honey instead of sugar.

Take all your ingredients

Take yeast in a bowl

Now take wheat flour in a bowl
