  1. Add all the ingredients for the stuffing together and mix until combined. Set aside. If you like a very hot climate, then keep the mixture in the fridge until you are ready to fill.
  2. Add the flour and salt in a bowl. Combine.
  3. Add enough water to make it into a pliable dough.
  4. Knead well in a floured surface until smooth.
  5. I let it rest for about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Now pinch a small ball from the dough.
  7. Pat it with little flour.
  8. Using a rolling pin, roll it out into a small circle.
  9. Remove a small amount of stuffing and place it in the middle of this circle.
  10. Now bring the sides of the dough above the stuffing to enclose it.
  11. Pinch the top to keep the stuffing in.
  12. Pat it down with your palm.
  13. Sprinkle some flour on top and roll it gently to make a flatbread.
  14. Drop this on a hot (med-high) skillet. Add few drops of oil around the sides.
  15. In a minute or two, check the underside for brown spots. Turn over the other side. Cook likewise.
  16. Serve warm/hot along with simple raita or plain yogurt and pickle.


Salt:Make sure to use only little salt for both the cover and filling. Otherwise together it might taste too salty.

Mozzarella : If the fresh is not available, I guess you can use the regular cheese. You might need to add only half of 1 cup. But I personally have to insist and recommend the fresh mozzarella since it makes such a delicious difference.



For the cover:

2-1/2 to 3 cups wheat flour, with little set aside for dusting
Salt to taste (see Tips)

For the stuffing:

1-1/2 cups (6.5 oz/180 grams) grated paneer
1 generous cup (5.5 oz/160 grams) crumbled fresh mozzarella (see Tips)
1-2 green chillies, thinly sliced (or as per taste, optional)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 large (abt 3 oz/80 grams) green garlic, trimmed and chopped
pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste (see Tips)
