Water or Milk

Take small portion from the dough and flatten it by using ‘ Chowka and belan”, ( rolling spin), just like a thick chappati . Then take a small size glass and cut circles (Repeat the process till the dough is finished.)
Heat oil or ghee in a pan and fry the thekuas on low flame till it turns golden brown.
Thekuas are ready to be served.
