Ajwain Poori and Mixed vegetable saagu

Ingredients for ajwain poori (Translation)

1 cup wheat flour
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp ajwain powder
Oil to fry

Mix wheat flour, salt and ajwain powder to get a soft dough. Make small balls of it and roll out each of them. Fry in hot oil. The addition of ajwain to the usual pooris gives it a different flavour and is good for health too.
