Method
   


  • In a mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp turmeric and salt.  Add water little at a time, and knead to form a firm and smooth dough.  Let the dough rest for about 30 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 4 round balls.  Roll each one as thin as chapati.  Cut it into diamond shape pieces.  You can use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter as well.  You can make round circles as well.
  • Make sure you place all the cut dough pieces separate, so that they do not stick. 
  • Now Dla dhokli is ready to serve.
