Chap shoro/shuro is originally cooked on firewood, chap refers to the meat, and shoro/shuro is the resulting product which is formed of ground meat and dough. Here I am demonstrating how you can make it while living in a flat. The resulting chap shuro is juicy and delicious. Guro is a place on the way to Hunza which is famous for chap shuro. My observations say that the steamed and small version of chap shuro is a dumpling and the deep-fried version of chap shuro is kachori.

Dough Kneading for shoro wraps:
To a bowl add 2 cups of wheat flour and a pinch of salt. Knead the mixture with cold water to make a soft dough and then divide the dough into equal parts and roll with a rolling pin to form circular sheets ( check the video on making Hunza Flatbread).
Putting together wraps and the Mixture:
There are two ways of putting together this chap shuro
1: Put the filling on the top of a circular wrap then take another wrap and put it over the filling and close the edges. Cook on a pan on the stovetop. The filling is already cooked, and you only have to make the wrapping nice brown and crisp.
2. Take a single wrapping sheet and put the filling on it and fold it halfway through, making it as if it is half a circle. Cook it the same way on the stovetop.
