Do you have recipe for Malai Khaja? The round ones. I have looked for recipes but would like to see pics so I can follow exactly esp this part:Roll each round roti into a long pencil shape. Cut into an oblong (cut side facing up). Put a little filling in the center and close each khaja. Seal the opposite sides. Many thanks!

Do you add any baking pwder or yeast in the puri or what makes them puff

No yeast or baking powder. Air trapped in the dough will expand, just press Dow the purine with a slotted spoon when frying.
