As the name suggests, stuffed shahi puris is truly a royal fare! dough prepared with flour and methi, is stuffed with a rich paneer mixture, rolled into puris and deep-fried in oil. The accents of methi contrast well with the soft blend of paneer, making this dish an unforgettable experience.

Ingredients


For The Dough
1 1/2 cups finely chopped fenugreek (methi) leaves
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp fresh curds (dahi)

2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients

Method
For the dough

  2. Roll out one portion of the dough into a thin round of about 75 mm. (3”) diameter circle with the help of a little oil.
  3. Put one portion of the stuffing in the centre and bring the edges together to cover the stuffing completely. Roll out again into 75 mm. (3”) diameter circle with the help of a little oil.
  4. Repeat with the remaining portions and stuffing to make 11 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 immediately.
