Now make small balls of the dough. Make as many balls as you can from the prepared dough.
Take a wooden board to roll out the fafda. Increase the length of one ball with hands and keep it on the board under your palm. Press it with the palms and it in front direction. Roll out the thin layer of the fafda.
Keep the fafda on the greased plate and prepare more from the other balls in the same manner.
Heat oil in a pan and fry 1-3 fafda at one time into the pan. Flip and turn the fafda and fry them until they turn light brown in colour. Fry all the fafdas in the same manner. If you are bale to roll the fafda quickly, then roll each of them one by one and fry them side by side.
