1cup flour

2potatoes boiled

salt to taste

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1 tbsp. green coriander finely chopped

1 green chilli finely chopped

Mash the potatoes

.Mix all the ingredients and knead a hard dough adding water a little little, as required.

Take a medium size ball and roll into a poori.

And deep fry them.

Relish them hot in breakfast with pickles.

Do not try to roll into a thin poori.You should not knead the flour and keep it, knead only when you are going to make it, as otherwise potatoes leave water and the dough becomes too soft to roll.

You can prepare simple alu bhaji with this.

rEFLECTIONS; no, not much, may be a little more, but still it wud be much less than anything prepared in nthe market, and they are very tasty, here u r not filling anything, mashed potatoes are kneaded in the flour.

david santos: Thanks for dropping:)

Hey, nice idea to share your recipes :) This one looks great, would be good now since its starting to get colder. But I'm still too slow to manage it for breakfast....weekend lunch maybe :)

Shalom: It doesnt take much time, u just have to knead the flour and then fry, but yes on weekends we always relish it more, as we are relaxed, no hurried eating as it is in my home by my H:)
I am going to put many more recipes, and i am thinking of making it an interactive blog, where I can answer any query if any by youngsters..who are learning cooking, may be i cud be of any help to anyone.
