Make round ball of kneaded flour and then flatten it little. Place the stuffing on top of the flattened ball of flour and close it to the middle by folding all the edges. Make a ball again and then flatten it to a bigger size of roti.

Brush oil on hot tawa, place this roti/ Behdwaan on it and cook the roti from both sides.

Serve hot with butter, pickle or glass of lassi. Choice is yours!
