Wheat Flour - 1/4 cup
Eggs - 2 nos
Milk - 1/2 glass
Soda powder - 1/2 tsp
or 1 tsp
Sugar - A little
Salt - As reqd

Mix together maida and wheat flour in a vessel. Add oil and the rest of the ingredients and make a soft dough. Make sure to pat the dough hard on a clean surface to make it soft. Cover the dough with a wet cloth for aleast 4 hrs. Before making the porottas, knead the dough once again with hands. On a clean surface, rub oil. Make small balls off the dough and roll them out like chappathis but in oval shape. Make pleats so as to look like a hand made paper fan. Roll it holding on one end to form a round. This is done to get the layers. Then roll out to make it like a chappathi. Make sure to roll only on one side with the chappathi stick. Put this on a pan on low flame till the porotta is ready. Once done, use both hands and pat on the sides of the porotta to get the layers.
