For dough of the crust:
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 cup butter
1 egg yolk beaten (Optional for the glaze)

For filling:
2 medium sized onion finely chopped
1 capsicum finely chopped
5-6 cloves of garlic
1-2 green chilies finely chopped
150 gms cottage cheese
2 tsp soya sauce
1 tsp chili sauce or schezwan sauce
1-2 tsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp vineger

1 tsp cornflour dissolved in 2-3 tsp water
1 tbsp oil
salt and black pepper to taste
For the crust:
  1. Mix the salt with 2 cups of flour in a mixing bowl. Make a hole in the center. Pour in water and vinegar. Mix lightly using your hands. Generously dust surface area. Knead until dough is firm and slightly sticky to make a soft dough. Roll the dough into a ball. Wrap it up in plastic wrap. Place the dough in refrigerator 30 minutes.
  2. Mix together butter and rest of the flour. (1 cup.) It will form a soft paste that is easy to spread.
  3. Spread the butter mix generously.Take the chilled dough and roll it into a rectangle 1/4 inch thick. Leaving a one inch margin around the edge, spread the butter mix over 2/3 of the dough. Fold the dough into thirds like you were folding a letter, starting with the portion of dough with no butter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the dough to relax, and so the butter doesn't get displaced when rolling out again.
  4. Roll out the dough again to a rectangle which 3 times longer than large. Take one end of the dough and fold it two-thirds of the dough's length toward the other end. Now, take the other end and fold it the opposite way. You should now have three layers of dough. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out again, but move the rolling pin along the folded sides (i.e. turn the dough 90 degrees). Repeat process up to 5 times.
  5. Refrigerate dough at least for 2 hours.
For the filling:
  1. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a kadai. Add finely chopped garlic. 
  2. Then add chopped onions, capsicum and saute for a while.
  3.  Addd  green chilies ,all the sauces,vinegar, salt and pepper and mix well .
  4. Add chopped cottage cheese and mix well.  Add cornflour slurry and mix well.   
  5. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool.

  1. Preheat oven at 400 F or 180 C. Place a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven. 
  2. Roll the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut the dough into 2 1/2 inch rectangles. Place a tablespoonful of stuffing on one side of the dough. Fold and lightly press ends together. 
  3. Place the patties on a baking sheet or in a greased baking tray. Brush the tops and edges of the patties with egg yolk or oil before placing in the oven if you want to have the shine on the surface of the patties. 
  4. Bake until golden brown, it will take around 35-45 minutes.
