  • 1 1/2 cups maida (plain flour)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. carom seeds (ajwain)
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter / olive oil
  • oil to shallow fry

Stuffing-

  • 150 gms. paneer, mashed / grated

          In a bowl, mix together maida, salt, oil and ajwain. Knead a dough by adding required quantity of water. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes. 

          Mix together all the ingredients for the stuffing and keep aside. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Roll out each portion by dusting some flour.

          Brush with some butter / oil and bake in a pre-heated microwave oven at 200 degrees C. for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy as an appetizer or tea-time snack with some green chutney or sauce.
