The preparation and cooking is similar to Poori. A spice mixture is added to the whole wheat flour to make the dough. And what a difference that makes in the taste and color too.
Just try it and see for yourself. You can use your favorite spice mix or the one given in the recipe below.
You can make the dough and keep it in the fridge

Ajwain (carom seeds or Bishop's weed) is good for digestion. I love the taste too. You can eat a pinch of ajwain seeds after food to help digestion.
