    5. Apply the flour paste well on the entire rolled out portion.

    7. Stick this rolled out portion on top of the first puri over which the paste has been applied.
    8. Now roll out these cut portions together into a big chapatti.
    9. Heat the tava slightly. Put the chapatti on it.
    10. After a couple of seconds, flip the side.
    11. Leave on the tava for a couple of seconds more and then remove.
    12. Separate the 2 chapattis immediately so as to get 2 chappathis out of one
    13. Cut the rounded sides so as to get a rectangular patti.
    14. Cut each chapatti into halves or more depending on the size of the samosas you want.
    15. Repeat the same with the remaining portions of dough.
    16. Take each patti (strip).
    17. Make a cone shape, fill it with 2 tbsp of the vegetable stuffing and seal the edge with a flour paste (made with little flour and some water).
    18. Deep fry and serve.

    20. Chop the French beans, carrots, onions and green chillies very finely.
