Divide dough into eight equal portions and make pedas.

Take a peda and flatten it by pressing. Place spring onion mixture on it and again make it into a peda. Seal the edges completely so that the stuffing does not come out.

Flatten these pedas, sprinkle a little flour and roll them with a rolling pin
