Direction

Put all the ingredients for the dought in one pan and mash them together  until the dough unsticks from the pan . Allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes. Do the same for the filling.  Divide the dough into 5-6 balls and roll each ball in a thick leaf. Cut round pieces using a mug.  Put in the filling and give it the traditional shape using your fingers. Brush with the beaten egg and bake for 25-30 minutes.
