2. Dissolved yeast into water, in a big bowl, combine flour, salt and sugar. Pour in the yeast liquid and knead to form a dough, add in oil and knead till smooth. Cover the dough and let it prove for about 20 minutes in a warm place. Test the dough after 20 minutes, if the dough is done, you will see a hole after you press it with a finger. If not, prove it again for another 10 minutes.
3. Divided the dough into 16 small balls (about 30g each), wrap the filling and slightly flat.
4. Pan- fry it over low heat for about 15 minutes or till done.
