4. Roll the dough to a small sized disc, place a ping pong ball size ball of the stuffing in it, fold into half, lift the sides and fold again tightly. Lightly roll again to make a thick small sized disc. Repeat the process to make several soojjappams.
5. In a medium wok, heat oil, fry the soojiappam's on low heat, until it turns light golden brown.
