Add water little by little to form a soft stiff dough.Grease the press with oil then fill it up with batter and keep it ready.

Meanwhile heat oil.

Press the dough starting from the edge to the center in a circular motion in the preheated.Do not add more layers to ensure even cooking.Turn over to other side when the bubbles ceases and cook again till bubbles ceases.Drain it tissue paper, cool down completely and then store  it in an airtight container.Repeat the same for the prepared remaining dough too.
