Heat oil for deep frying
Take small amount of dough and roll it into a round disc.
Place the rolled dough onto the kajjikayalu mold, stuff the keema on one side and close the mold tight.
Trim off any extra dough from the sides, then remove the Kajjikaaya from the mold and place it in the hot oil.
Cook over a medium flame until both sides are a light golden brown.
