Ingredients

  • 1 cup All purpose flour Maida
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee
  • Salt – as needed

Stuffing

  • 1 cup Green peas fresh/ frozen
  • 2 Green chilli
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Amchoor powder
  • ½ teaspoon Coriander seeds powder
  • ¼ teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee/oil
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • Salt – As needed

Instructions

  • First make dough with flour, salt, ghee and water. Knead for 5 minutes until smooth and keep aside.
  • Meanwhile, you can prepare the stuffing. In a mixer, grind peas, chilli, ginger, salt with little water to a paste.
  • Heat a pan with oil or ghee and splutter cumin, add asafoetida. Add ground paste, sugar, coriander seeds powder, amchoor powder.
  • Stir in medium flame to cook this mixture. Once thick and dry, switch off the flame and cool down.
  • Divide the dough and stuffing into equal sized balls (medium lemon sized). Take one ball of dough, dust and roll into thick disc. Keep the stuffing inside.
  • Cover it from all sides and gather at top. Seal well and roll again to a ball.
  • Dust and roll into thick puris.
  • Heat enough oil in kadai, slide in the rolled puris. Cook in medium flame by gently pressing against oil to let it puff well.
  • Flip and cook until golden spots appear. Drain in paper towel.

Notes

  • I used frozen peas (I got fresh peas, shelled, cleaned and frozen them). So first immersed in water to bring to room temperature.
  • I have ground and cooked the paste. It gets stuck to the bottom of pan while cooking, so better to use non stick or keep stirring to avoid burnt bottom.
  • Make sure to seal well, otherwise stuffing will leak and will spoil the oil. It never happened to me though, so no need to get sacred.
  • I divided into 5 first, but thought it was too big, you can very well divide into 6 to 8 equal sized balls.
