Servings 2 people


  • 200 gms mushrooms finely sliced
  • 2 small onions finely sliced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 6 slices brown bread
  • salt to taste
  • butter or homemade ghee
  • 2 tsp oil


  • Heat a pan and add olive oil.
  • Add chopped garlic, sauté for a few seconds, and then add chopped onions.
  • Sauté on medium heat for 2-3 minutes and then add sliced mushrooms.
  • Cook on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes till all the water released from mushrooms evaporates.
  • Add salt, mix well, and then transfer the filling to a bowl.
  • Cut the edges of all bread slices and then flatten the slices using a rolling pin.
  • Place a spoonful of mushroom stuffing in the center.
  • Apply some water on the edges of the bread using your fingers.
  • Pick up each corner and bring it to the center forming a small squarish pocket.
  • Pour a little ghee or butter on a non-stick flat pan, and place the turnover upside down (with the corners-side on the pan). This will ensure that once cooked from this side, the turnover will remain closed.
  • Before flipping this turnover to the other side, add some more ghee or butter on the pan.
  • Cook all the turnovers on both sides and leave them on the pan for a few minutes to ensure they become crunchy.
  • Serve hot with tomato ketchup.


  • I prefer using homemade ghee as it's a healthier option than readymade butter.
  • You can experiment by adding chopped spinach and/or cheese etc. in the filling.
  • You can spice up the turnovers for older kids and grownups by adding chili flakes in the filling.
