  • To prepare a dough, dissolve dry yeast in 1/4 cup of hot water.Dissolve it completely and keep it aside.
  • Mix all the ingredients of dough except oil.Keep it aside for 20-25 mins.(till it becomes double the volume)
  • Grease your palm with oil again knead the dough nicely.Keep it aside for 20-30 mins.
  • Prepare filling,heat oil in a pan,onion and crushed garlic.Saute till onions become golden brown in colour.
  • Add tomatoes and bhuno nicely till oil separates.
  • Add all the dry masala and mix well.
  • Add yellow pepper,corn kernels and mushrooms.Mix well. 

  • Cover and cook for 5-6 mins. Cook till the water dries up.Keep the mixture aside for cooling. Divide the mixture into 8 portions.
  • Now roll the dough into chappatis 6"inch in diameter.

  • Put one portion of the filling in the center of the chappati.
  • Fold each circle to form a semicircle.
  • Seal the edge using a little water and press the edge with the help of a fork.

  • Bake them in pre-heated oven for 40-45 mins or until they are evenly browned.(Keep checking in between)
  • Remove from the baking tray.Cut into half with the help of pizza cutter.
  • Serve hot with tomato ketchup......

Note: You can deep fry them instead of baking ...but according to me baking is a good option .
Try with different fillings too like chicken mince, crumbled paneer, crumbled boiled egg etc.....
