8 black peppercorns (kalimirch)
5 whole dry kashmiri red chillies , broken into pieces

For The Stuffing

1 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)

Method
For the dough

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a stiff dough using enough water.
  2. Keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.

For the masala powder

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a broad non-stick pan and dry roast on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till it releases an aroma.
  2. Cool slightly and blend in a mixer to a fine powder. Keep aside.

For the stuffing

  1. Clean, wash and soak the urad dal in water for 4 hours.
  2. Drain and blend in a mixer to a coarse paste using very little water.
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the urad dal paste and salt and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  4. Add the masala powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the coriander, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute. Keep aside to cool.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the stuffing into 10 equal portions.
  2. Roll out one portion of the dough into a thin round of about 75 mm. (3”) diameter with the help of a little oil.
  3. Put one portion of the stuffing in the centre and close the edges to cover the stuffing completely. Roll out again into small puris with the help of a little oil.
  4. Repeat with the remaining portions and stuffing to make 9 more stuffed puris.
  5. Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the puris a few at a time till they turn golden brown in colour from both sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
  6. Serve hot with a sweet pickle.
