  1. All-purpose flour- 2 cups
  2. Butter- ½ cup
  3. Potato- 2, mashed
  4. Cooked green peas- 1 cup
  5. Coriander powder- 2 tsp
  6. Red Chilli powder- 2 tsp
  7. Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
  8. Amchur powder- 1 tsp
  9. Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
  10. Carom seeds- 1 tsp
  11. Salt- as per taste


Step One

Heat a pan on medium heat, add 2 tsp of butter. Once the butter melts, add the cumin seeds and carom seeds. Let the seeds splutter, then add the coriander powder, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Saute the spices.

Step Two

Now, add the mashed potatoes and green peas. Season with some salt. Add the amchur powder. Mix well and set the mixture aside for cooling.

Step Three

In a separate bowl, take the flour, salt (as per taste) and butter. Mix it well till you get a breadcrumbs like texture. Add water and knead the dough. Set aside.

Step Four

Make small balls of the dough. Flatten it with your fingertips into medium sized discs. Place the stuffing in the center and bring the edge together to form the balls. Pinch off the excess dough. Now, slightly flatten these balls and set aside.

Step Five

In a separate pan, heat oil. Once the oil is hot, deep fry the balls and allow them to puff up. Remove the fried balls and place on a tissue paper upon browning.

Serve with tamarind chutney.

Alternatively, you can convert it into a chaat, by topping each balls with tamarind chutney, curd, chopped onions, coriander leaves and some chaat masala. Enjoy!
