1.  Make the dough. Add salt to the flour and stir. Add the ghee and incorporate it into the flour until crumbly. Add water little by little until hard dough forms. Cover and set aside for at least 30 minutes.

2.  Heat a pan with the oil. Add all of the seeds and when they crackle, add the onions. Saute till translucent and then add the spices. Saute for another 5 minutes. Let cool.

3.  Heat oven to 350*.

4.  Knead the dough again to make smooth. Divide into equal portions. Roll out into circles, and add around a tsp to a tsp and a half of the onions, depending on how big of a circle you made. Gather the sides and bring them together to form an enclosure. Twist and pinch closed. Put them closed side down and let them sit for around 5 minutes.

5.  Roll them out gently, just a little bit. Spray each with cooking spray, and bake in the oven for around 18 minutes, or until golden. Turn over half way through.
