Ingredients
  

For the puris :

  • 1/2 cup sooji/semolina/rava
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour / maida
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 200 ml hot water
  • Fresh Refined Oil for frying

For the chutney:

  • 1/2 cup pudina/mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • 1/2 lemon size tamarind
  • 1/4 cup jaggery
  • 5-6 dates
  • 5 green chillies
  • 100 ml water
  • A pinch of salt

Other ingredients:

  • 1 packet Aloo bhujjia
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup mashed potato
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander

Instructions
 

For the puris:

  • Transfer the semolina to a fresh bowl and add the salt. Mix them with hands and pour the hot water little by little.
  • Knead them well for 5-10min. The dough will be sticky now.
  • Sprinkle little all-purpose flour to reduce the stickiness. Knead them again for 3-5 min. The more you knead the dough; the more better the puris will fluff out.
  • Add about 2-3 tsp oil and again knead them for 5 min. Let them sit for 30min. It should be a medium tight dough.
  • Apply oil on to your working surface and roll them like rotis. Roll the dough very thin. Don’t use the flour to turn around when you roll.
  • Use the 1.5cm or less diameter caps of any bottles as molds to cut out the dough.
  • Deep fry them in hot oil.Cool them and store in an air tight container.

For the sweet/tangy/spicy chutney:

  • Grind all chutney ingredients to a watery liquid. Adjust the sweetness with more/less jaggery or dates.

Assembling:

  • Place the crispy puris on a platter. Press the centre of the puri with your fingers and make into a hole (big enough to stuff the vegetables).
  • Place little amount of mashed potato inside, followed by cucumber, onions and aloo bhujjia. Pour in the sauce and place a small corainder leaf on top.Keep aside.
  • Make about 10 at a time and serve immediately; otherwise it will get soggy.
  • Enjoy with hot masala chai!

Notes

Note: Aloo bhujjia is a spicy potato noodles and they are available in all the Indian grocery shops.
