For the dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water

For the filling:

  • 1/2 lb. ground beef or lamb
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and vegetable oil. Mix well. Gradually add the water and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. In a skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent. Add the ground beef or lamb and cook until browned.
