In a mixing bowl, add the flour baking powder, butter ghee (Clarified butter), salt, lemon juice and make a dough with ice water. If choosing two tone colours, make ball and colour accordingly.

Now roll into roti size, brush with butter ghee (Clarified butter), sprinkle mazeina add another repeat till you completed all. Roll like swiss roll, closely, tuck in the side as you roll, seal the edges with water. Cover with a kitchen tea cloth and let the dough to rest.

INFO & TIPS
Different, eye catching, the beauty was when I immserse these in preheated oil, the wafer thin layers opened up into the most gorgeous roses.... ❤️🌹
I decided to go all red, fragile, shaped into large roses, the layers... Opened up as I immersed them in preheated oil.
An inspiration drawn from the normal puri, eye catching colours of red to colour the dough, the rest to follow in the method, patience is key......
