Recipe by Sweta Biswal
60 min 4 Spicy Main Ingredient: Sunreap Maida Cuisine: Indian Fusion
For the Potlis :
1 cup Sunreap Maida
3 tbsp olive oil
1/3 tsp salt or as per taste
2 pinch baking soda
Cold water for kneading into a tight dough
For the Stuffing:
1 1/4 cup boiled chickpeas
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped green chili
2-3 finely chopped garlic
1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
3-4 tsp chopped coriander leaves
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
Step 1Transfer the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.Rub together using your fingers till the mixture gets a fine breadcrumbs consistency. Then add water little by little to make a tight dough. Knead it for 7-8 minutes. Smear it with a little oil and cover with a moist kitchen towel. Keep aside for 30 mins.
Step 2Take all the ingredients meant for stuffing into a blender jar. Give it a buzz (use the pulse setting) till you just get a fine mixture but do not turn it into a paste. The mixture should be able to hold shape.
Step 3Divide the dough into 10 portions. Roll out each one into a circle. Put some stuffing in the center. Draw a smaller circle with wet fingers about 1 cm inside the diameter of the circle. Gather the sides,making pleats as you do it, and finally give a twist to close the potli or bundle. Brush on some oil over the surface.
Step 4Repeat the same procedure with the remaining dough and stuffing. Place on a baking tray lined with some baking paper.
Step 5Pre-heat convection oven at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes. Place the baking tray on the middle rack. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and keep outside for 10 minutes. Again put it back in the preheated oven for 5 mins at 180 degrees C. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for at least 5-7 mins.
Step 6Serve hot.( Consume on the same day )
