Aloo Puri and Bhaji is a popular Indian dish that is mostly consumed as breakfast in North India. It is rich in Spices so we recommend you for a good digestion. However, it is very hard to digest for those who don't have a good appetite. Moreover, we also suggest that you eat this in winters because it is a bit hot for our stomach. Now, let us check the recipe.
2 cups Coarse Wheat Flour/Dardara Peesa Gehu Atta
1 Teaspoon Salt/Namak
Water to make the dough
4 Boiled Potatoes/Uble Aloo (Large Size)
1 Teaspoon Coriander Powder/Dhanya Powder
1½ Teaspoon Mango Powder/Khatai
1¼ Teaspoon Salt/Namak
½ Teaspoon Mixed Spices/Garam Masala
1¼ Red chilli Powder/Laal Mirch Powder
Aloo Puris are basically the stuffed puris. So the first step to make aloo puris is to make a dough. So take flour in a dish and add salt to it.
This dough should be very soft dough so when you make a dough, use good quantity of water.
To prepare the stuffing, firstly mash all your potatoes very nicely.
Add Salt, Mango Powder, Coriander Powder, Red Chilli Powder and Mixed Spices.
Mix all these ingredients properly.
Heat oil in a vessel but not very high.
Take a small portion from the dough and flatten it using a Rolling Pin. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure. You have to keep this very thick as shown in the picture below.
Now put the potato stuffing you made in the centre of the flattened dough portion and cover it nicely using the sides.
Again flatten it using the Rolling pin with very light pressure.
Once the oil is hot, lower the flame and start frying the puris.
As soon as you see your puris floating at the top, turn the gas to medium from low.
Your Puris are ready… These puris can be eaten alone or with tea. But most of the North Indians eat them with Bhaji. So check out the recipe of Aloo ki Bhaji/Sabzi eaten with these Pooris below.
Most important tip to make Puris is to knead the dough for about 5 mins once the dough is prepared. This makes the dough shiny.
Before you start frying the puris, take 1/4th Teaspoon of oil and knead the dough once again.
Make sure you make the dough at least 15 minutes before you fry them
The key ingredient of these puris is the Mango Powder.
While making the stuffing, please make a note that there should not be any lumps or pieces of potatoes. All the potatoes should be finely mashed or else your puris will break during the process of frying.
