This measurement is to prepare 7 medium size Biscuit Rottis.

In a pan mix maida very well with salt and hot oil. Knead the dough adding little water like poori dough and keep aside.
Mix all the ingredients kept for filling. Season with musturd seeds and mix it very well.
Make seven equal balls of the dough . Divide the filling mixture in to seven equal parts. Roll the ball to 3½ inch diameter size poori. Place one part of the filling mixture in the center of the poori. Gather the circular edges and close the fillings completely. Now roll this filled ball again to 3½ inch diameter size poori.
Heat oil for deep frying. When the oil is hot, gently slide one rotti in it. Now gently press using laddle to puff up. Flip and gently press again so to get maximum puff up. Fry till rotti becomes brown. Continue till all the rottis are fried one by one.
