Murtabak - thin dough with meat, egg, onions

Ingredients: store-bought pratha, or thin pancake (煎饼), egg-whisked, diced tomatoes, onions, minced meat, dashes of curry powder, dashes of turmeric powder

How to: Heat some oil in frying pan, then add in onions and fry till translucent. Add in minced meat, curry powder, and turmeric powder and fry till cooked. Add in diced tomatoes, then egg. When mixture is cooked, set aside. Heat up the frozen thin dough/pancake over flat pan, When nicely browned, add in some of the pre-fried meat mixture and pressed over the pancake. Fold the pancake into half (like an envelope) and heat through for a while.

There I got it - crispy edges on the dough with warm slight spicy meat and egg filings
