2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp salt

To be mixed into a stuffing
1 cup boiled sweet corn kernels, lightly crushed
1/2 cup grated paneer (cottage cheese)
1/4 cup grated vegetarian cheese
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes without the pulp
1/4 cup red, yellowand green chopped capsicum
2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
2 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
salt to taste

Other ingredients
whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta) for rolling

    For the tortillas

    1. Knead all the ingredients into a soft pliable dough adding enough warm water.
    2. Keep aside under a wet muslin cloth for ½ an hour.

    How to proceed

    1. Divide the stuffing into 4 equal portions and spread one portion on one tortilla.
    2. Apply little water on the edges. Put another tortilla on top and press well so the edges stick.

    the tortillas are challenging to make for the first time...They are very tasty and go well with the corn and cheese!
