  2. Add water as needed to make the firm dough.Divide the dough in about 30 equal parts.Take 2 plastic sheet, I am using butter paper, this makes it easy to roll.
  3. Place one part of the dough between two papers and flatten it thin.
  4. Heat oil in a heavy frying pan on medium heat. Check the oil temperature by dropping a small piece of dough into the oil, if it sizzle and rises to the surface slowly, without changing the color, oil is ready for frying.
  5. Gently transfer the flattened dough into the oil. Do not over crowed the frying pan. Fry them until they are light golden brown both sides.
  6. Take them out over paper towel to drain the excess oil.Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.

Sprinkle some chat masala on top of it.
