How to make Himachal Style Pahari Sidu Recipe -Stuffed Bread Recipe
To begin making the Himachal Style Pahari Sidu Recipe, we will first make the dough. Add yeast, whole wheat flour and sugar into a bowl and add water little at a time and knead well to form a soft and non-sticky dough.
Cover the dough with a lid and rest it in a warm place till it rises.
Grind the nuts along with green peas, ginger, garlic, green chillies and salt for the stuffing to a coarse mixture. Add crumbled paneer to the green peas mixture and keep it aside.
After an hour, divide the rested dough equally into small balls and flatten them using a roller.
The thickness must be about 1 centimeter. Add the stuffing to one side of the circle and fold in from the other side to form a semi-circle.
Pinch the edges and score it in the center. Heat a pan with 2 tablespoon oil and carefully place the stuffed roti on the heated pan toast on either side till it is cooked and becomes brown.
