3. For the stuffing – in a medium bowl, add in all the ingredients for the stuffing and mix well.

4. Divide the dough into 12 equal balls. Roll each ball with the rolling pin into a slightly thin puri, Take a knife and divide the rolled puri into two by cutting through the center.

5. Now take one half of the puri, and make a fold in the shape of a triangle. Now place this cone between your thumb and index finger and place a ball of the stuffing inside. Wet your finger and run it along the edges of the dough with water and seal to enclose the stuffing.
