  2. mix the spice powders with the flour with a spoon, so that the spices are evenly distributed in the flour. then make a well in the center and add oil.
  3. add some water. mix and then begin to knead.
  4. as required, add more water in between while kneading dough.
  5. knead into a firm dough with sufficient water.

  7. dough after 30 minutes. knead again.
  8. divide the dough into small or medium sized balls.
