Sfeeha with Soya mince


Sfeeha is a meat pie, traditionally made with bread as a base and meat filling. To make it more heart friendly I have used here soya mince. Soya mince is nothing but the crumbled dried soya chunks. You can use this various purposes like curries, burgers etc... Since soya is a very good source of protein, it's a good alternative to meat.
You can find my Sfeeha with meat filling recipe here.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients:
For the dough:
Whole wheat flour- 300 g
Warm water- 120 ml
Dried yeast- 1 tsp
Olive oil- 2 tsp
Honey- 1 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp

For the filling:
Soya mince- 150 g
Onion- 1 chopped finely
Tomato- 1 chopped finely
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
Chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Garam masala- 1/4 tsp
Oil- 1/2 tbsp
Tomato puree- 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Method:
Prepare the dough:
Sift the flour in a large bowl, add the salt, yeast and mix well. Make a well in the center, add the oil, honey and water little by little to make a smooth dough. Place the dough in a clean and oiled bowl. Cover with  a cling film and allow it to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Prepare the filling:
Soak the soya mince in warm water for 2 or 3 minutes. Drain the water completely. Heat the oil in a pan. Add ginger garlic paste and onion. Fry well until becomes light brown in colour. Then add the tomatoes and stir well. Cover the pan and cook until the tomatoes get mashes up. Now add all the spices and mix well. Finally add the soya mince and stir well. Cover the pan for few minutes until all the water evaporates. Switch it off and take it out from heat.
Prepare the sfeeha:


Divide the dough into lemon size balls. Roll out the dough into a oval shape. Place a big spoonful of filling in the middle and fold the edges to make a triangle shape. Cover and leave for another 5 minutes.

 Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200 degree celsius. Bake it in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until it looks brown on the sides.
Serve with minted yogurt or babaganoush and salad.

Note:
Soya mince doesn't stick to the bread dough like meat, if you feel that it's too crumbly add some grated cheese along with the soya mince.



This recipe goes to my own event Eat Well Live Well, Champa's Bake Off and yeastspotting.
