Matar Potli Or Potli Samosa

Matar Potli Or Potli Samosa

Matar potli or potli samosa is an interesting variation to the usual samosa. This can be made on festivals, functions and can be served as a tea time snack also. In this recipe, the pouch is stuffed with green peas and cheese but you can try with any other stuffing like potatoes, sweet corn or even non veg. I have used wheat flour and maida in 1 : 1 ratio (for the outer covering) to make it healthier but you can do only with maida also to make it more crispy. Because of its beautiful and unique shape, kids will surely love this hot snack.

    1. In a blender, grind together green peas and green chillies to paste.

    4. Add chaat masala, garam masala and chilli powder. Mix well.
    5. Add coriander leaves and saute for a while. Stuffing is ready, keep it aside and let it cool
  3. How to proceed
    1. Divide the dough into equal sized balls. Roll each ball into a circle having 3 – 4 inches diameter. Place a teaspoon full of filling in the centre and sprinkle some cheese on it.
    2. Bring the edges together and pinch at the neck of pouch or potli to seal it tight.

    3. Heat oil in a kadhai or wok and deep fry the potlis on low flame till they turn brown and crisp.
    4. Remove them on paper towel.
    5. Serve hot.
