Savory Wheat Biscuits

My mom used to make this snack often and I used to love it. You can make these biscuits in huge quantities and store for a few days. I will post the sweet version later. For now, enjoy my savory version.
This is the first time I am giving step by step procedure. Hope it will be useful for you.

Wheat flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Green chilli - 1
Mint & Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
Butter - 1 tbsp
Oil - To deep fry

To wheat flour, add salt, hing, softened butter, finely minced green chilli, mint and coriander leaves.
Take about 1/2 cup water (approximately) and add it little by little to the flour and knead for 10 minutes. If the dough is tight, add some more water. If it is very loose, add some flour.
Add oil at this stage and make a soft dough.

Slightly dust the surface with some flour. Take a small portion of the dough. Roll it and flatten using a rolling pin into circular shape.

The roti should neither be too thin nor thick.

Heat a griddle and cook the roti for 10 seconds on each side. It should not be cooked fully.
Repeat this procedure for rest of the rotis.

Stack them and cut into squares.

Heat oil in a pan.
When it is hot, fry the cut pieces in small batches to golden brown.

Cool completely and store in air tight containers.
Serve with tea/coffee.
