wash and rinse Fenugreek leaves nicely.. Once it get bit dry , chop them nicely . In a big plate , mix all the ingredients except ‘Oil to fry ‘ ..
Mix everything nicely first then Knead a semi soft dough . At time of kneading dough , add water little by little .. At last , grease your palms with a tsp oil and knead the dough nicely for couple of seconds .Allow it to rest for 10 mins ..
Take a bit large portion from the dough and roll a big roti.. If needed one can use little dry flour . Now, with a sharp knife , cut into your desired shape, either square or Diamond.
In a heavy bottomed Kadai /wok , keep oil on medium flame.. Start frying only when oil is perfectly hot .
