  • Heat a non-sticky tawa. Add ½ tablespoon oil and spread all over the tawa. Heat it for 1 minute.

  • Place this pieces on the tawa. Likewise fill as many pieces you can adjust on the tawa.
  • Let it cook for 2 minutes and flip all pieces gently.

  • Cook until both side is crispy and golden brown.
  • Take them out on a kitchen napkin.
  • Serve hot with green chutney or tomato sauce.

Cook’s Note

  • Do not leave the bread edges dipped in the batter for more time. Otherwise, bread would be soggy and would crumble in the batter.
