Method of preparation:
Remove stems, wash and finely chop green chiles.
Separate dill leaves and wash them under fresh water and strain the leaves.
In to the mixing bowl, add wheat flour, washed dill leaves, green chiles, cumin seeds and salt.
Knead wheat flour into somewhat soft dough using enough water.
Keep the dough covered with a damp cloth or plastic wrap for half an hour.
Divide the dough into two portions.
Dust some wheat flour and roll out each portion into thin disks and keep aside.
Smear few drops of oil with the help of a spoon on the rolled out circular disk and close to form a semi circle.
Spread few more drops of oil on the semi circle and close to form a triangle.
Press lightly, dust some wheat flour and roll the triangular shaped dough into somewhat thin chapathi.
Repeat the same with the other portion of wheat dough.
Heat a flat pan on medium – high heat.
When pan gets hot, place one rolled out dill leaves chapathi at a time.

When you see brown spots on the other side, remove from heat and place in a closed container to keep them soft.
Repeat the same with remaining rolled out chapathi.
