Sieve flour and salt into a bowl, add eggs and enough water/milk to make a smooth running batter.

Over medium heat, place a pan, lightly grease it, then pour some batter into the pan and spread (making the pancake as thick or thin as you would like them-tilt the pan from side to side to ensure the batter spreads evenly).

Fry until golden brown on both sides.

When done with pancakes, fill them with the meat mixture and roll them up.

Garnish with tomatoes and dhania, then serve with tomato sauce.
