For the dough
1 cup plain flour (maida)
1 cup whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp melted butter or ghee
a little milk

For the stuffing
3/4 cup chana dal (split Bengal gram)
2 green chillies, chopped
1 tsp chopped coriander (dhania)
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger, chopped
salt to taste

Other ingredients
ghee or oil


For the dough

Mix the plain flour, wheat flour, salt and butter. Add enough milk to make a soft dough.
Knead the dough very well and keep aside for 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into 12 equal parts and roll out into rounds with the help of a little flour.

For the stuffing

Wash the chana dal and soak in water for 1 hour.
Boil plenty of water, add the chana dal and salt and cook till tender. Drain and cool.
Add the green chillies, coriander, onion and ginger.

How to proceed

Put 2 tablespoons of the stuffing in the centre of each dough round and fold like an envelope from all corners.
Put the round on a tava with the open edges at the bottom. Cook for a few minutes using ghee or oil. Turn over on the other side and cook again until crisp.
Repeat for the remaining rounds and stuffing.
Serve hot with curds.
