Furthermore, I would like to share some tips for making soft whole wheat bread recipe. Firstly, in this recipe I added instant yeast directly to the flour. But you can even mix the instant yeast with 1/2 cup of warm water and sugar in a separate bowl and keep it in a warm place for about 10 mins or until frothy. Then add this mixture to the wheat flour.

Secondly, Knead the dough for about 8 to 10 mins. knead the dough until you get a soft and smooth dough. The dough will be slightly sticky but after the initial rise, it will be fine. If the dough looks dry then add some water. If the dough looks too sticky then add some flour.

Finally, you can also add 2 tbsp of butter or 2 tbsp of ghee or 1 tbsp ghee and 1 tbsp olive oil as you like.
