My Indian Calzone (with chicken masala filling)


You hear Calzones and Pizza Hut comes to mind, right? Calzones are actually folded over pizzas and any pizza crust recipe can be used to make the calzone. Filling can be anything of your choice as long as it is not "as much" as we top over a regular pizza. 

For the Covering:
All Purpose Flour: 2 cups
Milk: 3/4 cup
Active dry yeast: 2 tsp
Olive Oil: 3 tbsp
Sugar: 1 tbsp
Salt: 1 tsp
Dissolve the sugar and yeast in the lukewarm milk and wait till it turns frothy.
Add the salt, Oil and the flour to it and  knead till a soft dough is formed.
If it is too sticky, You can apply oil on ur palms and knead again.
Grease a bowl and keep the dough inside that.
Turn the dough once inside the bowl so that it is uniformly oiled.
Keep it in a warm place so that it doubles in bulk.
It might take 2 hours or more depending on the temperature of the surroundings.

For the filling
Frozen Shawerma Meat: 400 gm pack (you can used cooked and shredded chicken breast instead)
Onion: 1 sliced
Tomato: 1 chopped
Green Chilly: 1 chopped
Ginger Garlic: 1 tbsp
Capsicum: 1 sliced
Chilly Powder: 1 tsp
Salt: as needed
Red Chilly Sauce: 1 tsp
Mozarella cheese: as needed

Heat oil, throw in the onions, ginger garlic, green chilly and saute till brown.
Add the tomatoes and cook till mashed up.
Add the capsicum and the chilly powder and saute for a few minutes.
Now add the red chilly sauce and chicken and saute for a few minutes.
Take off fire.

To make the Calzone:
Preheat oven to 200 C
Divide the dough in to 4 equal portions and roll out like for chapati.
Place the chicken filling on one half (the edges should be left free)
Place the mozarella cheese on top.
Fold so that you get a semi circle (or the half moon shape)
Apply water on the edges so that the edges is sealed.
Press with fork along the edges.
Make gashes on the calzone for steam to escape.
Brush the top of the calzone with either Olive oil or egg white. (for a brown finish)
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes till they are brown in colour and cooked.
(oven temperatures vary so keep an eye after 15 minutes)
Serve warm with tomato sauce.
