  • Using a cookie cutter cut the rolled chappati into smaller circles. I used a 2½" cutter.
  • Keep the small circles on the side.
  • Repeat steps 7 to 9 using rest of the dough. Also keep on adding the remaining dough which is left after cutting out the smaller circles.
  • Heat oil in a wok, karai or deep pan over medium heat.
  • In the meantime cut small slits in each of the small circles.
