- Now cut this chapati in small square pieces, about 3-centimetre square
- Now take one square piece and join the opposite sides and press them firmly.
- Join the other two sides in the opposite direction. Press them and twist them slightly so that they don’t open while deep frying. ( Please check it in the video below)
- Now take oil in a deep frying pan and heat it on medium flame. Once the oil is hot enough, deep fry the kormolas till they turn golden brown.
