DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté onion in butter.
  • Add remaining ingredients for the stuffing and let simmer for 5 minutes, until well mixed and dry.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool (always use cold stuffing).
  • Meanwhile prepare dough -- sift flour into a bowl.
  • Add enough water a little at a time, to make a fairly stiff dough.
  • Set aside for 1/2 hour.
  • Knead until smooth and satiny.
  • Divide dough into 6-8 equal parts.
  • Roll out each piece into a 3 inch circle.
  • Place filling in centre of one piece -- cover with another piece.
  • Press and seal edges to prevent filling from coming out.
  • Roll out again very gently on a floured board into a 6 inch circle.
  • Bake on a preheated griddle for a minute.
  • Spread butter on both sides of the Pratha.
  • Turn over--fry both sides till crisp and brown.
  • Serve hot with any curry, yoghurt or buttermilk.
  • Different stuffing can be used, i.e. boiled mashed peas, boiled mashed potatoes, thinly chopped cabbage, cauliflower, or boiled/fried mince meat.
