Cumin or caraway seeds ... 1/2 tsp (optional)
Oil to fry.
1. Mix the mashed potato, salt, crushed black pepper,cumin seeds,half tbsp. oil and knead into a hard dough.(add very little water or else the atta becomes too soft to handle)
2. Roll out small puris and deep fry.The dough is like bajra or jowar, if you find it difficult to roll, just pat with your hands on the board using dry flour and lift with a spatula.
