1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp carom seeds (ajwain) , optional
2 tsp oil
salt to taste
1/4 tsp oil for kneading
maize flour (makai ka atta) for rolling

  2. Knead again using remaining 1 tsp of oil till smooth and elastic
  3. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions and roll out each portion of the dough between two sheets of plastic into a thin circle of 250 mm. (10") diameter. Dust the tortilla generously with flour to make the rolling easier.
  4. Heat a wok / wide iron kadhai upside down on a high flame and when hot place the tortilla gently over the wok / kadhai ensuring that no creases form on the surface.
