  5. Add ice cold water, knead such that it just comes together to form a dough. Do not work too much on the dough. Dough need not be smooth.
  6. The consistency of the dough should be medium soft. Cover and keep it aside for 30-45 minutes.
  7. Divide the dough into equal small lemon sized ball. Balls need not be smooth. Make an indentation (not a hole) in the centre with your thumb. In a kadhai or deep bottom pan heat ghee.
