For Making Chat
Chat Masala - 1/4 tsp
Chili powder a pinch
Sev as required
Method to prepare:
To make Samosas:
Take all the ingredients needed for making the dough and knead to a stiff dough using very little water. Rest it for 15 mins.
To make the Filling:
Microwave potatoes for 6 mins, peel and mash.
Shell the peas and blanch for 3 mins.
Heat a pan with oil, saute onions, then add all the spices, fresh peas, potatoes. combine everything well. Remove and allow to cool
To make the Samosas,
Roll out small balls into a circle. Make a vertical cut in the middle. Place a spoon of the filling in the middle, and close it like you will do an envelope.
Seal it on all sides properly and deep fry.
To make the curds.
Hung the curds and then beat it with Sugar and Red Chili powder
To assemble the chat.
In a serving plate, take the samosas, roughly break it.
Pour the curds over it, then the tamarind chutney. Sprinkle the chat masala over this.
Then goes the sev, finely chopped coriander leaves and red chili powder.
Normally even green chutney gets added to this. But then I didn't make it.
I am simply happy with the results of this, so maybe next time I will try adding green chutney too.
