For the basket
1 1/2 cups plain flour (maida)
4 tsp hot oil
1/2 tsp salt
oil for deep-frying

For the stuffing
2 large potatoes, cubed and boiled
3/4 cup boiled green peas
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp chopped ginger (adrak)
1 tsp chopped green chilli
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
1 tsp dried mango powder (amchur)
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste


    For the baskets

    1. Mix the flour, hot oil and salt and make a semi-stiff dough by adding water.
    2. Knead very well. Allow to rest 30 minutes.
    3. Roll out into small puris and press inside a tart mould. Put another puri in another tart mould. Like that build up the layers of puris in tart moulds.
    4. Deep fry the stack in hot oil until crisp.
    5. Store the fried puris in an airtight container.

    How to proceed

    1. Prepare the stuffing by heating the oil and frying the cumin seeds. When they crackle, add the ginger and green chilli and fry for a few seconds. Add the remaining ingredients. Keep the mixture hot.
    2. When required to serve, fill the baskets with the stuffing.

    1. Serve hot.
