All-time favourite ghughras with an off-beat stuffing, this snack is sure to bowl you over with its flawless texture and exciting taste!
We have used a mixture of French beans and paneer flavoured with a dash of green chilli paste as the filling for the ghughras. The ghughras themselves have a very nice texture as the dough is made with sufficient ghee.
We have not shaped this snack like traditional ghughras just to make things easier and quicker for you, but if you wish to boost the visual appeal by shaping it like authentic ghughras, you can.
Prepare the stuffing just before you make the snack because it will release water. While frying the Ghughra with Fansi and Paneer Stuffing, maintain a medium flame because the stuffing will remain uncooked if you fry on a high flame.
Serve this tasty snack with green chutney. You can also try other recipes like the Vatana na Ghughra , and the Spinach and Cheese Sambousek .
