Divide the dough into two equal portions and spread it on the plastic in a round shape with the help of dry flour. Make a few holes in it. Remember to keep your hand little wet while doing this. Later, gently shift it from the plastic or ziplock bag to your hand. 

Now pop it on a greased hot tawa. Spread some oil around it and into the holes made on it. Fry it for a while on medium heat from both the sides. Keep adding oil or ghee as required to cook it well. Keep frying until it gets brown spots. Now you can serve it hot with pickle or yoghurt.
