Tips and Variations:

Hi, everytime I try making these, I go wrong at step 5 above. The mixed vegetables mixed along with the flour just ends up too soggy, I end up mixing a lot of extra flour to get it to the right consistency to roll but it always end up looking and tasting more of atta and very less vegetables. I have tried various variations, including draining all water from vegetables before mixing in dry flour but it is still very wet and i end up just pouring lots of flour to make the dough firm enough to roll. Please advice on this.

Response: Hi Jaya, thanks for trying the recipe. Did you cook the mixed veggies in step-2? After cooking they should turn semi-dry. Whether you are using boiled vegetables or raw vegetables, cook them in a non-stick pan (in step-2) until almost water evaporates and mixture turns semi-dry; then cool them down before mixing with the flour. If you are making it in large quantity then it will take more time to cook the vegetables in step-2. Make sure that you cook the vegetables in a pan after boiling.
