½ kilogram of Gram Flour (Besan)
1 tsp. Mustard Oil
1 heaped tsp. of Salt
1 tsp. Red Chilli Powder (Pisi Lal Mirch)
1 cup of Water
1 tsp. Dry Fenugreek
Leaves (Kastoori Methi) (finely chopped)
¼ kilogram of All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
Mix together the gram flour, salt, red chilli powder and oil well. Knead the mixture to a dough for about five minutes. Add the fenugreek leaves and knead for another three minutes or 'till it is soft.
Heat oil in a deep-frying pan on very high heat. Rub some oil on your palm. Roll out the dough into a long strip one inch thick. Cut the roll into inch size pieces. Flatten each piece out into a round shape.
Lightly dust both sides of the small chapatis with maida. Fry very lightly on low flame to a golden yellow color. Take them out with a sieve type ladle and drain the oil completely.
