SAVOURY GUJIAS



Gujias / gujiyas are basically stuffed pastry with some filling which is deep fried. The sweet version is most popular and made during Holi festival with mawa / coconut filling. I have made the savoury version with aloo masala filling and it makes a nice party snack.

Ingredients:
White flour ......... 3 cups
Ajwain................. 1 tsp.
Potatoes..............6 -7
Chana dal........... 1 cup
Coriander powder .....1 tbsp.
Cumin powder ........... 1 tbsp.
Red chilli powder .......1 tsp.
Turmeric powder ........ 1 tsp.
Dry mango powder....... 1 tsp.
Green chillies ................. 2 - 3 chopped finely
Coriander leaves .......... handful
Methi leaves ...handful (or) kasoori methi .....1 tbsp.
Salt ....to taste
Oil

Method:
1. Boil the potatoes and cut them into small pieces.
2. Soak chana dal for 2-3 hours and boil it with salt.Take care not to over cook.

3. Mix all the spices, salt, green chillies, coriander and methi leaves, potatoes and dal.

4. Knead the white flour with salt, ajwain. 2-3 tbsp. of oil, adding little water.


5. Roll out the dough and using a gujia mould, put the filling and make the gujias.

Deep fry and serve them hot with chilli sauce and mint chutney.
