Method Add the flours to a mixing bowl, add salt, asafetida, cumin seeds, omam powder and mix them all well.
Add ghee and crumble the flour and ghee with hands
Add water in 3 installments to make a tight dough. You may need water more or less water depending on the flour and the moisture level, so add water slowly until a tight dough is achieved. It took me ½ cup + 2 table spoons of water.
Allow the dough to rest for 1 hour on room temperature
Heat oil to fry
Split the dough into 3 portions
Roll the dough to less than 1/8th inch thickness
Use a pizza cutter or a cookie cutter or knife and cut into diamond shapes
Take each piece and fry them in oil until golden on both sides
Remove from oil to a paper towel to remove excess oil and serve at room temperature.
