Mixed vegetables stuffed Poori (Gujjia / Kajjirkai style)
This is one of my favourite food / snack during my school days. Loved to have it in my lunch box. We used to wait for them a lot whenever mom planned to prepare them. Usually she used to make lot of extras and pack it for us as it was a hit during lunch time. They used to vanish off in no time and all my friends too loved them. So giving you some suggestions, try it out and let me know your feedback.
You can use any type of fillings as per your taste:
1. Paneer bhurji and or Vegetable paneer bhurji
2. Potato and or Potato peas subji
3. Mix vegetables fry
4. Or just a single veggie fry like carrot/beetroot etc
5. Mushroom masala
6. can fill in with some sundal/lentils.
7. Minced chicken/fish stir fry
8. Onion Tomato Masala
9. Egg Bhurji
Just make sure the stuffings you choose are not too soggy.
For this I have used the mixed vegetables fry which I usually make as a side dish.
For the cover:
Usually use the dough just like the ones made for chapathis/parathas/pooris. Can also use maida/all purpose flour for the outer cover. Will be a savoury version of samos/gujjia/ kajjirkai.
So can use plain wheat flour/whole wheat flour.
Flour/wheat flour - 2 cups
Filling - as required
Salt as needed
Oil for deep frying
Mix the flour with salt and 1 tbsp of oil and knead like the dough used for making chapathis or pooris. Cover with a plate or wet cloth and set aside atleast for 30 minutes.
Take a small lemon sized ball and dust with some plain flour and roll as small pooris. Lift and layer them on top of the mould and fill in some stuffing. Cover the mould and remove the excess dough. Press to seal well and repeat the process until you are done with all.
Heat oil for deep frying and drop in small batches. Deep fry both sides till golden brown. Remove and serve as it is and or with tomato ketchup or mint chutney or any of your favourite dip.
Will post in more with different fillings whenever I make them.
Enjoy as a snack or pack this in yours or kids lunch boxes.
