1 tbsp besan (bengal gram flour)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
a pinch of baking powder
salt to taste

For The Potato Stuffing
1 cup boiled , peeled and mashed potatoes
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 tbsp roughly chopped green chillies
1 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp dried mango powder (amchur)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
oil for greasing and cooking
For the moong dal batter

  1. Clean, wash and soak the green moong dal in a deep bowl in enough water for 2 to 3 hours. Drain well.
  2. Combine the green moong dal, green chillies and curds in a mixer and blend till smooth.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix well. Keep aside.

For the potato stuffing

  1. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
  2. When the seeds crackle, add the onions and green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  3. Add the potatoes, coriander, chilli powder, dried mango powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  4. Divide the stuffing into 4 equal portions. Keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), grease it lightly with oil, sprinkle a little water on it (it should sizzle immediately) and wipe off using a wet piece of cloth.
  2. Pour ¼th of the batter on the tava (griddle) and spread in a circular motion to make a 175 mm. (7") thin chila.
  3. Smear little oil on the edges of the chila.
  4. Spread a portion of the potato stuffing evenly over the chila using a spatula and cook till the chila turns golden brown in colour.
  5. Fold over using a spatula, while pressing it lightly to make a flat roll.
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter and stuffing to make 3 more rolls.
  7. Cut each roll into 4 equal pieces and serve immediately.
