In a bowl mix all the above mentioned ingredients (except oil to deep fry). Add required quantity of water and knead into a soft dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Take a small portion out of the dough and pat it directly on a greased steel plate with your fore fingers into a thin round circle. Make straight line markings with a knife or a pizza cutter.
Steam for 5 minutes and let it cool down before you break loose all the pieces. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry them in batches till golden in colour.
Drain on a kitchen towel and serve as tea-time snacks or as appetizers with green chutney, tomato sauce or mayo. They can also be stored in airtight containers for later use.
