  • Salt – as per taste if required


  • Mix flour, salt and make soft dough by adding water little by little as required.
  • Apply one teaspoon of oil on the surface of the dough and keep it covered for 30 minutes.
  • Now shape the dough into balls. You can make 12 to 15 pieces as shown in photograph.

  • By using a chapatti roller and rolling pin, spread a dough ball in circular shape.
  • Use dry flour for dusting to avoid stickiness while rolling.
  • Apply oil or ghee on the surface; first fold it to a half circle; apply light oil again and further fold it to a quarter circle to look like a triangle.
  • Roll it again to shape it to a larger triangular shape as shown.
