Vegetable Calzone – With a Multi-Purpose Vegetable Masala !

My daughter is much into Italian Food.Whether that’s pizza,pasta or calzone,it will bring a smile to her.And realizing this one chance,I do stuff lots of veggies to all these favorites of hers,especially the ones she is not so much pleased to eat.Thanks to calzone,it makes my job easier.Each small bites from this makes me happy and relieved.The vegetable stuffing I prepare here is a regular in my kitchen.Ready to be filled into garam samosas,yummy puffs and even in my toasts..The addition when I prepare for my little one is sweet corn and beets.Do try this. Here is the recipe for Vegetable Calzone.


For Calzone (Makes three or four)

1 cup flour/maida
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp olive oil
pinch of salt
lukewarm water to make dough

For Vegetable Masala

3/4 cup finely chopped vegetables of your choice,boiled
1 medium potato,boiled and roughly mashed
1/4 cup corn or sweet corn,cooked (may add sweet corn for children)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 green chilly,chopped (optional)
1 small onion,finely chopped
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1.5 tsp kashmiri chilly powder (your choice again)
1 tsp garam masla
salt as needed
handful of chopped coriander
juice of one lime


Prepare a dough for Calzone mixing all the ingredients in a bowl.Slowly add lukewarm water to make a soft  dough.Keep it in a warm place to rise.Meanwhile heat oil in a medium skillet and splutter cumin seeds.Add ginger-garlic paste and saute till the raw smell vanish.Add chopped onion and chilly to this.Roast till light brown.Add turmeric,chilly and garam masala powders to this and roast till raw smell disappears.Add boiled vegetables ( I usually have carrots,beetroot,cabbage,beans and peas.Since it’s colorful the kids will finish it within no time) and mashed potato to this and mix well.Cook for 3-5 minutes adding salt.Finally garnish with chopped coriander and lime juice.Now you may check for the dough.If it’s risen well,punch it down and make 3 or 4 portions of the same.Prepare balls of similar size and roll out to medium thick discs.Dust the board with flour.Now again keep it for 10 more minutes in a warm place.
Preheat the oven into 200 degree.Spray the baking tray with oil.Now take the disc and arrange the filling on one side and cover with the other.Use your hand to press and close it first.Then press with a fork to give it a nice pattern.Repeat this with all the discs and arrange the calzones in tray.Brush with egg wash and bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.Serve with sauce.
