    1 tsp turmeric powder

    1/2 tsp dhaniya powder

    1/2 tsp red chilli powder

    Water, to knead the dough

    1 tbsp goda masala mixed with 1 tsp oil

    Oil to deep fry


For the stuffing:

In a pan dry roast poppy seeds and copra for 3-4 minutes. Cool. Grind in a mixie. Keep aside.

In a wok add oil. In the heated oil add mustard seeds, zeera, hing and turmeric. Let the seeds splutter.

Add the onions. Saute till pink.

Add the ginger-garlic paste, green chilli paste, charoli, red chilli powder, dhaniya powder, zeera powder, goda masala. Saute.

Add chopped coriander leaves and lemon juice. Saute.

Add the copra-poppy seed paste. Mix well. Keep aside.

For the outer casing:

Finish by kneading for 1 minute with a little oil. Your dough is ready.

Make flat rounds like you do for chapatis. Apply a little goda masala-oil. Place 2-3 Tbsp of the filling. Seal it from all sides.

Deep fry till golden.
