½ kg carrots, boiled and cubed
1 pc onion, chopped
1 tbsp mixed spices powder
1 tbsp curry powder
Salt to taste
1 kg potatoes, boiled and cubed
6 pcs green chilies, chopped
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 tbsp mango powder
1 bunch dhania leaves, chopped


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
½ cup butter
¼ cup water


To prepare the filling, mix all ingredients until blended. Set aside.

To prepare the crust, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter and then add water. Knead the dough until elastic and easy to handle. Form into small balls and roll out thinly to a circle. Cut each circle in half. Place filling into the center fold and twist ends. Press firmly with fork to seal edges. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot with mango or mint chutney.

Yield: 32 pieces
