6. start kneading it. work with the dough at least for 5 minutes until it gets smooth and soft.

7. pinch a portion of it and roll it to a smooth ball. lesser wrinkle.

8. prepare all the dough. close and let it sit until use. take out one at a time and close again. this is to retain its moisture.

9. dust the floor and flatten the dough piece to a thin disc. cut it with the help of any lid to the size desired.

10. remove off the excess. you can reuse them to make balls again at last.

11. prepare all the discs and place one above the other. dust in between each disc to avoid it getting stuck to each other. heat a tawa and dust off excess flour by transferring the disc from one hand to another repeatedly.
