Step 2

For making the uttapam batter, take the idli dosai mix in a bowl and add the chopped onions, green chilies, tomato, coriander leaves, salt, cumin, and carom seeds. Mix it up. Here I have used Fresho idli dosai batter mix. You can try something similarly.

CHICKEN AND LENTIL CALZONE

Hello guys, welcome to my cozy corner again. Today I am going to share a recipe of Chicken And Lentil Calzone which is my version of Calzones that I came across reading in some magazine. A Calzone is an oven-baked, folded pizza which originated in Naples in the 18th century. It is generally prepared from a salted dough, filled with ham, chicken, vegetables, lots of cheese and also an egg. And my idea of making it is a bit simpler which has some lentil and minced meat fried in light spices and onions. It is an easy recipe which you can try as a snack. I hope you will like it. So, here is the recipe—

  1. Chicken Keema – 200 gms
  2. Chana Dal – 100 gms
  3. Onion – 2
  4. Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1/2 tsp
  5. Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp

Next, add the boiled chana dal and saute everything together for a minute. Cool it.

Step 4

To make the calzones, take one portion of the dough and make a small chapati from it. Fill some of the keema batter in the middle of the chapati, fold it from the middle and stick it to the other end of the chapati using some water. Do so for all of them.

Step 5

dsc03579_20190126050153193Take a pan again. Add vegetable oil. Drop the prepared calzones one by one in it and shallow fry them till crisp, browned and done. Soak any extra oil using a tissue paper.
