Method
Take a wide bowl add all the above ingredients except oil.
Add water & make a tight dough.Do not make your dough watery.
Grease a plastic sheet with oil,take a small ball of dough & place it on the sheet.
Grease your fingers & press them to a thin disc.I usually prick it with a fork for even frying to avoid puffing while frying.This is totally optional.
Heat oil in a pan slide each disc carefully into the hot oil.Deep fry them till crisp & brown on both sides in medium high flame.
Remove them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Cool them completely & store it in an air tight container.
Note:
a) Adding urad dal flour is optional,i have made both ways & never found any difference.
b) Instead of butter you can even add hot oil.
c) Crushed garlic & peanuts can also be added for extra taste.
d) Try to flatten the ball as thin as possible.
e) Do not fry in very high flame,try to adjust the temperature while frying.
f) While frying cover the dough with a plate or cloth so it does not get dry.
