3. In a kadai, heat 2 tbsp oil. add garlic-cumin seeds paste and saute.

4. Then add 400 gms chaulai. stir well. you will notice chaulai leaves will shrink.

5. Then add 1 tsp coriander powder, 1.5 tsp red chilli powder, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, salt to taste. mix well. cover and cook on low flame till water evaporates and oil seperates. let it cool.

6. For the dough, in a paraat take 2 cups wheat flour, add salt to taste and water as required to knead a soft dough. grease some oil and knead again. cover and rest for 10 minutes.

7. Take a small ball sized dough. roll it into a thin disc. keep aside in a plate. take a little bigger piece of dough than taken previously. similarly roll into a dic.
