While adding little water at time, start kneading the dough from refined flour. Once the dough is ready keep it aside for 5 minutes. To make maida kaju from dough Divide the dough in large lemon size balls. Start rolling the namkeen dough ball into 6-7 inch big circular disc. With the help of plastic bottle cap, cut the rolled dough into small small round discs roughly size of a coil. Now divide the coin size disc further into two piece using same plastic bottle cap.
