      Non is baked in special ovens – tanur/chakdon/degdon as well as in frying pans tafdon, toba. All kinds of non are usually cooked from wheat (seldom barley and corn) dough. The way of producing non is different. It depends on the variety of non, its assignment (for what event it is cooked) and place. Non has many sizes – from the smallest kulchacha to the largest sizes.
