Notes

Cornmeal flour can be skipped and replaced with whole wheat flour.

The same masala can be used for stuffing and paratha can be prepared.

Adjust the quantity of whole wheat flour to the masala, the moisture in the masala is enough to prepare the dough. If you find the dough to be dry, little water can be added.
