- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt
- 2 teaspoons ghee
- 1/2-3/4 cup milk

- Filling Ingredients:
- 1 cup paneer grated or crumbled
- salt to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon red chile powder cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dhana-jeera
- 1/4 cup mint leaves finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon cilantro leaves finely chopped
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
Add yogurt, ghee and milk a little at a time as needed. Knead for about 5 minutes until you have a soft dough.
Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Beat down the dough. Add oil and mix. Cover and let it rest for another 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the filling by combining paneer, chile, chaat masala, cumin and salt and stir to combine.
Divide the dough into 8 and with your hands, form into 8 smooth balls.
On a lightly floured board, roll into a circle about 7" in diameter. Place 2 tablespoons of filling in the center. Bring up the sides of the dough around the filling to seal.
Roll out again into a circle.
Brush a little ghee on a skillet or tawa. Place rolled out circle on skillet. Brush a little ghee on the top side and sprinkle a little of the onion seed on top. Cook until air bubbles appear.
