    3. Dissolve the mixture in oil, make a thick paste and keep aside.
    4. Roll out the wheat dough into a chapatti.
    5. Add half tsp of the besan mixture and spread it onto the chapatti.

    7. Fold the roll again, to give it a round shape.
    8. Make sure to fold the corners first so that the besan mixture doesn't come out.
