Servings: 4


  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 red onions, grated
  • 1¾ cups minced beef
  • 1 ½  teaspoons Plochman’s® Mild Yellow Mustard

  • 3 tablespoons chutney sauce
  • ½ teaspoon Plochman’s® Mild Yellow Mustard

  4. Pour oil over them, making sure they are well coated. Then cover and place on one side for two hours.

  7. Stretch the dough balls into circles on a chopping board.
