  4. salt to taste
  5. Black pepper powder - to taste
  6. Stuffing (for the spicy version): oil - 1 & 1/2 tbsps
  7. Boiled and mashed potatoes (with salt)- 1 cup
  8. Boiled peas - 1/2 cup
  9. garlic powder - 1/2 tsp
  10. Mixed herbs - 1/2 tsp
  11. Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
  12. Crushed chili flakes - 1/4 cup
  13. Grated processed cheese - 1/4 cup or 1 cheese slice
  14. Stuffing (for the sweet version) : butter - 1/2 tbsp
  15. oil - 1 tbsp
  16. Boiled and mashed Sweet potatoes - 1 cup
  17. Chopped apples - 1/2 cup
  18. salt - to taste
  19. Black pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
  20. chili powder - 1/2 tsp


  1. Heat 1.5 tbsps oil in a pan, and add the mashed potatoes and peas. Stir the mixture till the oil is well mixed in.
  2. Add salt to taste, garlic powder, pepper powder, chili flakes or chili powder and stir well into the mashed veggies.
  3. Let cook for about 2 minutes on low flame. Now add the grated cheese/cheese slice and the herbs. Stir again and check for salt. Let cook for 1 minute more and turn off the flame.
  4. For the sweet version, heat butter and oil in a pan. Add the chopped apples and let cook on low flame for 2-3 minutes. Add in the cooked sweet potatoes and mix well.
  5. Add salt to taste, very little as we only want to enhance the sweetness in contrast! Add pepper and chili powder as well and stir in till well-mixed.Let cook for 2-3 minutes more and remove. Let cool.
  6. For the 'tartlets'..... Sieve together the flours and add the salt and pepper powder. Knead into a soft but firm dough using sufficient water. Divide into small and equal portions.
  7. Heat oil for frying. Roll out a dough portion into a puri or a round 2 inches in diameter. Wrap over an aluminium cupcake mould and press gently. Prick all over with fork and drop carefully into the oil.
  8. Press down to hold the mould in place for few seconds and to let the fried puri retain its shape before the mould frees itself.
  9. Then remove the cupcake mould out of the oil and let the puri fry on low heat for few seconds more. Do not fry till golden brown and crisp as we will be further baking these along with the stuffing.
  10. Repeat with the rest of the dough and drain excess oil. Now fill the puris with the prepared stuffing and sprinkle grated cheese on top.
  11. Arrange the stuffed puris or tartlets in a baking dish and bake for about 10-15 minutes or till cheese turns golden brown. In the micro, I baked them for about 7-8 minutes in a micro. Serve hot with desired accompaniment.
