How to make Ghugra (spicy Karanji)

  1. For the dough -Take the atta in bowl, add rava, salt and ghee and mix it together. Knead a tough dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. For the fillng, take oil in kadhai, add hing, jeera, ginger-chilli paste and sauté for half a minute. Then add the french beans and green peas, amchur powder, salt as per taste. Cover with a lid and let it cook.
  3. In between, stir it occasionally. Make sure that it should not overcook and remain al-dente. Then add in coconut and coriander and cover without water for a minute. Once cooked, let the filling cool for some time.
  4. For the final preparation, make poories about 4 inches diameter or smaller. The poories should be a little thicker than normal, stuff it with the filling. Close it into half and frill it.
  5. Heat the oil, once it is hot, fry these ghugras on medium heat till they are golden brown in colour. (As the filling is already cooked no need to overcook it. )
  6. Serve hot with green chutney or ketchup.
My Tip: In case you cannot frill it then give the design with a fork. You can change the fillings with only french beans or peas.
