  • oil to deep fry
Mix all the above ingredients nicely except ghee.Then add ghee and mix it nicely to get a crumbled texture. To this add water as required to make it a firm dough

Let it rest for 1/2 hr. Heat oil in a pan for deep fry. Divide the dough in 3-4 ball, spread with roller and cut small circles with a cookie cutter or make tiny puri and prick them with a fork so that they do not puff up.

Fry in medium flame until crispy golden brown , then take them out and spread on tissue paper to remove excess oil. One they are cool completely store in airtight container and enjoy your tiny little crispy wonder.
