Aalo Ke Poori
When it comes to indian food, Poori aka Puri (puffed indian bread) is something that anyone can relate to and is as common as fish and chips in UK. If for once you can forget counting your calories, then this is one thing which is easy to make, absolutely fulfilling and heart contenting. I have earlier shared Bedmi Puri, and Spinach Puri, now sharing another simple variant of Puri. This Aalo Puri (आलू पूरी) is made with stuffing of Aalo (Potato) and hence the name Aalo Ke Poori. I must add that this is full of Carbs, hence surely not something to eat on daily basis, but a perfect dish (which goes on its own) for weekend brunch or those long train journeys in India. Keep reading for the step by step pictorial recipe of Aalo Ke Puri. As they say best memories are made with food, next time you have a guest for brunch try this recipe 🙂
In a mixing bowl, take Whole wheat flour and add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon oil to it.
Now with the help of Luke warm water, knead it to a soft and smooth dough. Cover it with cling film and keep aside for 15 minutes.
In an another bowl/plate, mash the boiled potatoes and add all the spices into it.
Mix it properly and keep aside. Our stuffing is ready.
Heat sufficient oil in a pan / kadhai. Now divide the dough into equal parts and make round balls of it. Take one ball and roll it with the help of rolling pin into a small circle. Place 1 tablespoon of stuffing in the middle.
Now gather all the edges of circle and seal it.
Press it gently with the help of your palm to spread the stuffing, and then again roll it with rolling pin into a circle of 4-4.5 inch diameter.
Put them in the hot oil and deep fry on medium heat until they are nice golden in colour from both the sides.
Take them out when done and put on a clean tissue paper so that any additional oil on surface can be soaked away.
Serve them hot and enjoy with masala chai and pickle
Your dough should be little more soft as compared to the normal chapati dough. If it is be tight, stuffing may pop out while rolling.
You can add 1 tablespoon of Chopped coriander leaves to the stuffing for that added flavour of coriander.
You can make these and store it for couple of day.
