  21. 21. MANUFACTURING PROCESSThe manufacturing process in Lijjat is a continuous process. Daily chores start inearly morning around 4:30 am or even earlier depending upon the work load. In the 1st stage flour is kneaded into the dough & is pounded in big chunks.The chunks of pounded dough are sent for distribution among the rolling sisters. In the 2nd stage the papad rolling sisters srrive from their home to productioncenters to take the pounded dough. They can take as much as may be desired by them.They go back to their home & roll out the papad. The rolled papad are dried in clean,airy, open space, mainly in the bright sunlight. The dried papad are usually deliveredback to the production center next day when the sisters come to take fresh dough. Thesisters receive their rolling charges as soon as they deliver papad. In the 3rd stage papad received from sisters are checked for their quality &packed. The papad packets are then sent for marketing. The entire process is verysimple & carried out manually without using any complicated machine. The sisters have standardized the entire process. For the 1st stage properlycleaned empty cans or tins are kept ready & in each tin 11 kg flour is poured. Fixedquantity of masala i.e herbs & powdered spices are then added in the flour. Largetubes of water containing necessary proportion of salt & soda-bi-carb are alsoprepared & kept ready. In order to save time & expedite the work, this part of theprocess is usually carried out on the previous day so that the flour kneading work canimmediately startin the early morning. When desired quantity of water & masala are added in each batch of 11 kg dryflour & the flour is kneaded in dough, the weight of the dough go up to 17 kg. it isvery easy to find out the whether the dough is properly kneaded & pounded. It doesnot require much skill. 1 kg of pounded dough should yield 820 gm of dried papad as nearly 120 gmcan get evaporated during the process of rolling & drying of papad. However theyhave fixed lower norm of 810 gm of as standard yield & in addition to that a furtherloss of 10 gm is considered as acceptable loss. This is how the papad rolling sisterwho take 1 kg of dough must have to deliver back at least 800 gm of dried papad. 21
