I love no mess foods, especially for a evening snack or in my lunch box. Goa is famous for its stuffed breads. Here is my version of this stuffed delicacy. Bread stuffed with spiced paneer mix.

5. Make small balls of the dough. Roll them out into a circle with your hand or using a rolling pin. Place the filling in and close as shown below.

6. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush with oil. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place these stuffed buns on the parchment paper with a little space in between since these will expand. Let them rise for another 20 minutes.
