Ingredients:

Maida- 300ml
Whole wheat flour- 150 ml
Sugar- 1 tbsp
Salt- 1 tsp
Olive Oil- 4 tbsp
Active dry yeast- 2 tbsp (If fresh yeast is used, double the quantity)
Red Chilli flakes- 1 tbsp
Grated cheese- 30- 40 ml

Method:

Take half a cup of lukewarm water (NOT hot water) and add the sugar and yeast. Keep it closed for about 10 minutes in a warm place. the mixture will froth up which indicates that the yeast is active. Take a large bowl. Add the flours and salt and mix thoroughly. Add the yeast mixture and mix well to make a smooth dough. If needed, add a little water. Add 2 tbsp olive oil and knead the dough well for about 10- 12 minutes. Place the dough in a oiled pan, cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Dust the kitchen top with flour and roll out the dough into a large rectangle of half an inch thickness. Spread 2 tbsp olive oil on the surface, sprinkle the chilli flakes and grated cheese evenly over the entire surface. Lightly roll the roller so that the flakes and cheese are embedded in the dough. Roll the dough into a log shape. With a sharp knife, cut the log into one inch thick rounds and place on a greased baking tray with space in between. Let the rolls rest in a warm place for 10 minutes. The volume will double. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for about 30 minutes.
