- Next, in another pan, bring 1 cup of water to boil.
- Add 1 tbsp ghee and a little bit of salt (if needed).
- Add the wheat flour and the rice flour once the water boils and started bringing it all together with a spatula. It will form a thick dough..
- On medium flame, keep pressing the dough and softening it. If it’s too thick, you can add a little bit of water but not too much as the dough needs to be kneaded later.
- Cover the pan with a lid and leave it for a couple of minutes. Switch off the flame after, and let the dough cool down..
- Once cooled, bring the dough together and knead it until it into a soft round ball..
- Make 10 round balls out of the kneaded dough. Flatten each ball into a circle shape using your fingers. Put the filling inside each flattened dough and try to bring it into the shape as shown in the picture.
