3 cups maida
2 table spoon roasted white sesame seeds(til)
1-2 table spoon chilli powder
1 table spoon cumin powder
1 table spoon corainder powder
1 tea spoon ajwain powder


Boil the moong dal in 3 cups of water till soft.Take a muslin cloth and put the maida in it and tie a knot.Keep the flour bundle in a cooker vessel or steamer and steam it for around 10mins.Let it cool down.

Meanwhile grind the cooked dal into a paste without using water.When the dough bundle is cooled open it and break it into powder. If its to much hard you can even grate it to get the powder.

Now take the grinded dal in a bowl. Add the steamed maida powder and chilli powder, sesame seeds, cumin powder, corainder powder, salt and ajwain powder.Kned it into a soft dough without using water.Dal already had moisture, so its enough to kned it into dough.
