- 50 gms soy flour

- 500 to 600 gms pure ghee.
- Take all the flours (wheat, oat and soy) and maida in a broad vessel. Add 2 tbsp ghee in it to make the dough soft. Mix them properly. Mix water or milk to make dough like bhakhari. Mix it well. Cover the dough with wet thin cloth. Keep it aside for some time.

Lastly add 10 gms khaskhas – poppy seeds, 20 to 30 gms cardamom powder. Mix well for one minute and keep the mixture aside under the fan for it to cool down.
- Now take the dough, make equal small parts of it and roll them into small round shaped puries. Fill the stuffing into half of the puri and cover with the balance half.apply water on the border of the entire round puri so that when you cover, it sticks properly. Mould the border with thumb and finger tips or with moulds available in the market Once the moulded stuffed puris are ready, arrange them in the dish and cover with wet thin cloth.
