  2. Blanch the green peas in boiling water for 5 mins,keep aside.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan, add jeera and when it splutters add grated ginger and cashew. Add the potatoes and peas, stir to mix well. Add all the spices, powders and salt.
  4. Now add the fresh coriander and let the mixture cool.
  5. Now take the dough, make lemon sized balls. Roll out a small circle, and place 1 tsp of the cooled potato filling in the centre.
  6. Just around the filling, apply some water making a circle. Now try and give it a potli like shape as seen in the pic.
  7. Then cut a flat strip out of the same dough to tie around the potli.Make all your potlis ready like this and keep covered.
  8. Deep fry on medium flame by adjusting the flame. Enjoy with green chutney or schezwan sauce or ketchup.

My Tip:

You can make variations with fillings made just out of green peas, or Chinese fillings etc.
