1 1/2 cups rice flour (chawal ka atta)
1/4 tsp salt

  1. Put 1 cup of water to boil with the salt.
  2. Add the flour and stir till the flour has absorbed the water. Remove from the heat.
  3. Knead into a soft dough with a little water as required. Divide the dough into six small balls.
  4. On a wooden board, sprinkle a little water. Wet the hand a little and press each ball evenly to a round, lifting it from the board to form an even round.
  5. Heat an earthen tava (khapri). Reduce the heat and bake a round on one side. When it leaves the sides, turn it over on the other side. As it rises, press it around the sides till it puffs like a ball.
  6. Remove and keep aside in a plate lined with a napkin.
  7. Repeat with the remaining rounds.
  8. Serve hot.
