Divide the dough into 8 equal parts and also divide the stuffing in 8 parts. They will be approx same sizes.
Take 1 dough ball and roll small circle and apply 1/8th teaspoon of oil and add 1 stuffing ball and close on all sides as in fig.
Now dip the stuffed ball in flour and gently roll and make thin parathas. 
And fry on both sides until golden with teaspoon of butter/oil on both sides on medium high heat.
