Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep Frying)



In a large bowl add the semolina, flour and salt and knead it into asemi stiff dough by adding water gradually.

Cover the kneaded dough and let it rest for 5-10 minutes

Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. Use a cutter to cut out small rounds. Or roll out individual small rounds.

Prick the rolled out rounds so that they do not puff up.
