INGREDIENTS

FOR THE FILLING

Any left over vegetables or the same filling used for the samosa recipe can be used.I used the filling left over from making SPRING ROLLS.

  • VANASPATI(VEGETABLE FAT)-100GM
  • ICE COLD WATER-TO KNEAD

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degree Celsius.
  • Mix the flour with ice cold water and salt into a soft dough.Knead several times.
  • Keep the dough aside covered with a wet cloth for half an hour.
  • Melt the vanaspati until it resembles oil.
  • Now refrigerate the vanaspati for 10 minutes .
  • Take it out and beat with a fork until it becomes creamy.
  • Roll out the dough into a big rectangle using flour for dusting.
  • Divide the rectangle into three squares and apply one -third of vanaspati to two-third of the rectangle.
  • Now first fold the empty side over the side where vanaspati is applied and then the third side on top of that.
  • Repeat the same process 3 times.
  • Refrigerate for 10 minutes and cut into six squares.
  • Place a spoonful of filling in the middle and fold diagonally.
