Normally darkness happens when you make dough much in advance and keep it for a long time before you roll it out. This absorbs moisture and make it dark!!!

As the poplular talk, rolling out was difficult for me. It ended up breaking but I think it was because the dough was bit moist.I added some more rice flour and coated it.It came out well.
