Ingredients
  Gram flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Turmeric powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Soda bicarbonate 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Oil 1 Tablespoon
  Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
  Ajwain seeds 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Adjust Quantity As Needed)
  Salt To Taste
Directions

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Add water little by little in order to make a very soft dough out of it.
Take a small amount of dough and put it on a greased polythene sheet.
Use the base of the palm to drag the dough ball into a straight line, right from the start.
Support it by holding the dough with the other hand at its tip.
By doing this, you can make a strip from the dough ball.
Even though it sounds difficult, with a little practice you can master this technique very easily.
Heat some oil in a wide and heavy pan and put the strips in the heated oil.
Fry both sides on medium flame, till they become crispy.
Be careful not to get them browned Slowly lift them from the pan after draining the oil.
On cooling the strips become crispier.
