  1. Boil 2 cups of water in a vessel and pour oil in it.

  2. Take rice flour in a large vessel so that mixing will be easy.  Add salt to taste and mix well.

  3. When water boils well pour it over the flour and mix with a flat ladle.  Pour water little by little by mixing all the time with ladle until dough is soft and like chapathi dough, need not add all water.  Keep it covered with clean wet cloth for 15-20 minutes.

  4. When dough is still warm mix well with hands, if need be add water.
