  1. Mix all the above ingredients to make a soft dough.
  2. Divide it into 5 equal parts.
  3. Flatten it on a non-stick pan (Like a small Paratha, with a wet hand).
  4. Pour a tsp of oil from the sides
  5. Cook on a medium flame till golden brown on both sides.
  6. Tastes best with Curd, Ghee or homemade white butter.
