For the dough

  2. Allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.

For the rajma stuffing

  1. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the onions and garlic and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the mashed rajma, salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander, coriander-cumin seeds powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

  5. Divide the stuffing into 3 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed

  2. Roll out each portion into a 200 mm. (8") diameter circle.
  3. Cook each chapati lightly on both the sides on a hot tava (griddle) and keep aside.
  4. Place a chapati on a flat , dry surface.
  5. Place a potion of the mixture in the centre, sprinkle 2 tbsp cheese over it and fold 2 opposite corners of the chapati over the filling, overlapping them slightly. Now fold the remaining 2 sides to seal the stuffing well.
