Refined oil- to deep fry

Water- half cup

Mayonnaise/any spread of your choice


Take the maida, salt, powdered milk, ajwain in a bowl and dry mix all of them.

Whisk the egg well and add to the mix.

Add refined oil and water and mix all of them together.

Mix together until you get a dosa-like batter.

Now, heat a pan, brush some oil on it.

Pour some batter and spread well in a round-ish shape. Cook on a medium flame.

After two minutes, flip and cook the other side.

Take the thin pan-cake like soft rotis on a plate.

Now, spread mayonnaise or any spread of your choice on the roti.

Add aloo-jeera as filling in the centre of the roti. If you want some extra spice, add chopped onion, green chilli, lemon and black pepper to it, but that’s absolutely optional.

Now, cover the sides and make it in square shapes.

Take enough oil in a kadhai and heat it well.

Slowly put the wraps and deep fry them.

If you are satisfied with the colour of the wrap, take it out on a plate.

Serve it with chutney or ketchup.
