I wanted a version without maida and I wanted a no deep fry version too. Hence I baked it in my OTG. You can deep fry too in oil. Beginners in baking please read the healthy baking guide and your manual. The mode and temperatures will differ based on your equipment. Excuse the not so great images. The lighting had gone by the time things were done.

You can add a pinch of baking soda if you want.

The thinner you roll the crisper it would be.

When it hot it won’t be crispy.

Keep a close watch to avoid burning. I burnt a batch.

Don’t keep them outside for a long time.

Store in an airtight container with a tissue.

This will take you a minimum of 2-3 hours. Patience is the key.

Observe the temperature and timings for the first batch and alter accordingly.
