  4. Two tablespoon of olive oil
  5. Two teaspoons of regular sugar
  6. One teaspoon of salt
  8. 7-8 boiled potatoes diced
  9. One cup of boiled peas
  10. Hand full of fresh coriander
  11. One small stem of fresh ginger chopped
  12. A teaspoon of Garam masala
  13. A teaspoon of cumin seeds
  14. A teaspoon of coriander seeds
  15. Salt and pepper to taste
  16. 100 gm of cheddar cheese diced
  17. 3 tablesoons of cooking oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine yeast and warm water. Cover it and let it sit for 5 minutes. This is called proofing the yeast.
  2. Mix together flour, sugar, salt and olive oil. Now add the flour mixture to the yeast water. Knead for about 10 minutes till it is smooth and elastic.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a large bowl that has been coated lightly with olive oil. Allow it to rise in a warm environment for about an hour,
  4. Until the dough is double in size. Meanwhile you can work on the stuffing – for the stuffing you can use dry vegetables or meat.
  5. In a wok, add the cooking oil, and let it heat. Over medium heat add in the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fresh ginger and chillies.
  6. Saute for a few seconds. Now add in the boiled potatoes and peas. Let the potatoes and peas cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Then add in the, garam masala, salt, and pepper. Taste the stuffing and adjust the flavours accordingly.
  8. Then add in the chilly powder, garam masala, amchur, salt, and pepper. Taste the stuffing and adjust the flavours accordingly.
  9. TO ASSEMBLE Now remove the dough on a flour dusted kitchen surface and knead it a little to push the air out with your hands.
  10. At this stage you can either use the dough immediately or keep it wrapped in the fridge until required.
  11. If using straightway divide the dough into little balls depending on the size of the calzone you want. This much amount of dough will make 8 medium-sized
  12. Place a ball of dough onto a lightly floured surface. Use your finger first to stretch the dough, then roll the dough
  13. with a rolling-pin until you have almost 8 inch circle. If your dough shrinks back a bit after rolling, let it rest for few minutes and try rolling again.
  14. Now fill your zone, on half of your dough circle. Leaving about an inch border between the filling and the edge.
  15. Using little water, wet the edge of the bottom half of the Calzone. Fold the top half over the filling to form a sideways half-moon shape.
  16. Press the edge firmly with your fingers or a fork to seal properly. Carefully transfer the Calzone to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  17. Repeat the steps to assemble the remaining Calzones. Use a sharp knife to slice a 2 inch slit into the top of each Calzone.
  18. This allows the steam to escape while cooking. At this stage you can give the calzone an egg wash and sprinkle with some seasome seeds. fully optional
  19. Bake at 200* C for about 20 minutes in a preheated oven, until you get a beautiful golden color .
  20. Serve it hot to your friends and family. Watching a movie with your loved ones in your living room.
