Step 5: Apply some oil to your hands so they don’t stick! Then, grab a generous amount of the dough and flatten it. Then add a spoonful of stuffing onto it. Seal the dough by simply making it into a ball shape.

Step 6: Repeat the same process with the rest of the dough.

Step 7: Add some oil into a frying pan, letting it heat up for 30-40 seconds.

Step 8: Place the dough balls into the frying pan, allowing them to cook on a medium heat. Flip them over when the bottom is cooked and golden brown.

Step 9: Once you have flipped them over, flatten it with your spatula so it becomes a pancake shape! Let it cook until it is golden like the other side.

Step 10: Serve and enjoy!
