For the Bread Dough 

Take 3 portions of Wheat Flour and one portion of All purpose flour, add a tsp of  sugar, salt to taste and mix all the ingredients together, add a tbsp of instant yeast, mix again, add Luke warm water little at a time and mix it together. Knead the dough well for 10 minutes… the dough should be soft and bit sticky, add a tsp of  oil and knead it again. Apply oil on the dough, cover the bowl and keep it aside and let it proof until it becomes double in size. Once double in size, punch the dough and knead the for few more minutes, if the dough is very sticky add little flour. Divide the dough into 6 portions.
