  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoon semolina
  • 1 teaspoon ajwain
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
  • salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoon oil
  • water


  1. Take wheat flour in a wide bowl, add semolina to it.

  2. Heat oil in a pan, we need it to mix the dough.

  3. Add ajwain, salt, pepper powder and oil to the flour. Mix it well. It should form a crumbly mixture.

  4. Add little water and mix to a stiff dough.

  5. Divide the dough into two parts, take a ball of the dough, dust with flour and roll into a circle which is nether too thick or thin.
  6. Make diagonal incisions on it. We need to make them in a rhombus shape.

  7. Heat oil, once the oil is put the cut pieces into it. Fry on a low flame. Keep stirring in between. Once they are cooked, remove them and repeat for the other ball of dough.

  8. Once they are cool, store in a air tight container.
