  1. For the dough, mix together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast & oil. Add lukewarm water & knead to a very soft dough. Keep punching the dough as you knead. Shape the dough into a ball & coat it with oil. Keep the dough covered in a warm place for 1-2 hours or till double in volume. Meanwhile prepare the filling.
  2. For the filling, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a broad non-stick pan. Add the minced garlic & saute’ till you get a very nice aroma. Add the onions & cook till almost brown in colour. Stir in the chopped mushrooms+spinach+ salt + pepper powder+ paprika powder & cook on medium high heat till completely dry. Keep aside. In another pan, heat 2 tbsps of butter & add the flour. Fry for 2 minutes on low heat. Add the cream & milk & cook till thick. Stir in the parmesan cheese & switch off heat. Add the sauted veggies to this creamy sauce & mix well. Check for salt & add more if needed. Let this cool down completely to room temperature.
  3. Punch down the risen dough & shape into 6 equal parts. Shape each portion into a ball. Take a dough ball & flatten it so that the center is thicker than the edges. Place 1 heaping tbsp of the filling & seal the edges to shape into a ball again. Place on a greased tray. Repeat with other portions of the dough & the filling.
  4. Keep covered in a warm place for 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200C.
