Radish  2-3 pieces( grated), edible oil, ginger 1 small pc, green chili 1 pc and Salt to taste, black pepper powder half tea spoon, Atta (wheat flour)


First make the filling as follows:

Grate the radish pcs into fine granules, add salt to taste, black pepper powder, 1 green chili chopped, grated ginger, lemon juice 1 tea spoon and mix well. The radish gives out water on pressing, which must be strained and removed.
