Wonderful! I used regular whole wheat flour instead of chapati flour and left out the kalonji seeds (I did not even know what they were!). I used my automatic bread machine to mix and rise the dough. I suggest you keep an eye on the dough if you do this--I used 1.5 cups of water and it was way too much! After some adjustments in the flour, all was well. They puffed up nicely when fried. I took them to a local Indian function and all were eaten right away!
