(I used the measurement of small katori ( wati )
Take a small ball of wheat dough & roll it like small phulka. Do not roll very thin.
Fill with puran  & fold it like envolope as shown in the picture.
My measurements yield 12 dind.
Steam dind in a steamer for 30-40 minutes. ( Idli steamer can be used)
