About this recipe: The western world's favourite snack is yours with this easy to follow recipe. Just like chapati, you can make the dough the night before, cover and keep in the fridge overnight. That way, all you have to do is heat oil, fry and serve. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream for a comforting snack.
