Role each dough into thin puris. Place the plain roti on a flat board. Apply ghee on the roti and sprinkle about a tsp of maida over it.
Now place a coloured roti on top and repeat the process of applying ghee and maida and alternately layering with plain and coloured roti.
Roll the rotis into a tight roll (do not apply pressure). Cut the roll into 1 or 2 inch pieces depending on how big a chiroti you want. With a rolling pin roll each piece into small circles. Do not put pressure.
