  • pressure cook potato for 3 whistle and mash it well . Fine chop the onion.
  • heat oil in a vessel and add cumin seeds
  • once it splutters add chopped onion.
  • once the onion becomes transparent, add salt, turmeric powder, chili powder and sambhar powder. add less salt than usual as we will be adding cheese which itself will give a salty flavor.

  • dust some flour on the rolling pan and dough
  • divide the dough to two equal sized balls
  • flatten one dough ball to a big circle and place it on the parchment paper
  • spread the potato masala in the center of the dough circle 
  • fold the sides and cover the masala so that the masala is completely sealed
  • sprinkle cheese on top of it
  • preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius or 350 degree Fahrenheit
  • flatter another dough ball to a thick circle and then place it on top of the cheese layer
  • tuck all the extra sides under the first layer
  • sprinkle chopped coriander leaves on top
