- White radish - 3/4 cup grated

- Gram flour (Besan) - 1/4 cup
- Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
- Carom seeds (Ajwain) - 1 tsp
- Oil - 1 tbsp
- Salt - To taste
- Red chili powder - To taste
- Mix 3/4 cup grated radish, 1 cup wheat flour, 1/4 cup besan (gram flour), 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp ajwain (carom seeds), 1 tbsp oil, salt and red chili powder to taste.
- Fluff with a fork and keep aside covered for 1/2 hour to let the radish release all the water it holds.
- Now add minimum water, only as much as needed to knead into a dough. Grated radish releases lots of water especially after adding salt and chili powder. So keep the dough more on the harder side when kneading. It will become more and more softer as time goes by. Apply some oil at the end to make it less sticky. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
- If you want to start preparing after some time, then store the dough covered in a refrigerator.
- Take about 2"dough ball and roll into 4 & 1/2" big circle. Fold into a triangle, and roll again to make a few mm thick circle. Use wheat flour to dust both sides when rolling.
- Roast nicely on a hot griddle. Apply 1/4 tsp oil on both sides when roasting.
- Serve hot with butter, yogurt, and any pickle.
