  • Grate cheese in this mixture
  • Slowly add wheat and gram flour to this puree mixing frequently
  • Only add enough flour to make stiff dough like for chapati/thepala without using water
  • Need well using oil and keep aside for 15-20 mins
  • Divide the dough in to equal size portions and roll into flat circle
