1/2 ladle udad dhall flour
1/2 tsp haldi
1 tsp red chilli powder
few curry leaves

  • Take all the dry ingredients except butter and mix it well with fingers or a spoon,
  • add the butter and form a crumbly mixture. adjust butter if need be.
  • add water and knead a soft pliable dough.
  • spread a neat plastic sheet and grease it well.
  • make small balls out of the dough ,place them on the sheet and using a bottle cap,press it lightly to form even discs.
