Spicy penori:

Wheat flour-2 cups

Semolina-2 spoons

Ginger-1 inch piece(chopped and minced)

Green chillies-3 (chopped and minced)

Cumin seeds-1/2

spoon(coarsely powdered)

Cold water about 3/4 cup

Olive oil-3-4 spoons.

Salt to taste.

Oil for frying the penori’s.

Take a deep bowl and add in the wheat flour, coarsely minced Ginger and green chillies paste ,cumin seeds powder, salt and 1 table spoon of oil and lightly mix it with your finger tips. Now slowly add in some cold water little by little and knead it into a firm dough. Cover and keep the dough aside for about 30 mins.

Divide the dough into 8 balls or pedas.

Roll each of them into thin chapatis and keep them aside.

Apply a little oil over the chapati and then sprinkle a little wheat flour over it. Take the second chapati and follow the same procedure with the third and fourth chapati.

Now place the chapatis one over the other leaving a space of about 1 inch at the top.Tightly roll the chapatis into a log.Tuck in the edges at the two ends of the rolled chapati.

You may keep the log in the fridge as you prepare the second roll or log. This step is optional. It’s helps in slicing the rolled chapatis into neat slices.

Roll each sliced piece lightly with the help of a rolling pin. It should not be too thin.

Now fry them on medium heat till crisp and golden and enjoy.
