3/4 cup maize flour(makai ka atta),
1/2 cup maida (plain flour)
1 tbsp oil
3/4 tsp salt or to taste
1/4 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
1/4 cup warm water


  1. sift both the flours along with salt
  2. add oil and ajwain
  3. knead to a stiff dough like you make for puris
  4. cover with a damp cloth and put aside for 30 minutes then knead it again for smoother dough
  5. make small balls and roll out into very thin chapatis, edges may break but don't bother.
  6. prick the chapati with a fork all over
  7. cut the chapatis into eight triangles like we cut pizza
  8. deep fry these triangles till light brown in color and keep them on a paper napkin to absorb excessive oil.
  9. otherwise you can bake them in a oven by  spreading  the tortillas out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake the tortillas for about 6 minutes, then use tongs to turn the side, and bake for another 6 to 9 minutes, until they are just beginning to color.  Remove from the oven and let cool.the oven should be preheated at 350°F or 180°C.
