Tips and Notes
Adding oil or ghee to the dough is important to get flaky crust.
Do not knead the dough more. just bring the dough together and knead very gently.
You can add chaat masala powder if amchur is not available.
As mentioned in the recipe, the dough should not be rolled very thin or thick.
Instead of adding crushed whole spices you can add 1/2 teaspoon each fennel powder and coriander powder while making the filling.
