Grated carrot - ¼ cup
Salt - to taste

Take a wide bowl and add all the ingredients except oil and water.

Give it a mix; slowly add water to make a soft dough.  Close with the lid and keep aside.

Divide the dough into medium sized balls. 

Apply some oil over the leaf or sheet which you are using for spreading.

Take a ball from that and  place it over the banana leaf or polythene sheet; press with your finger to flatten as thin as possible.

( If the dough is sticking to the hand, wet the hand and then press)
