Sweet Potato Stuffed Poori

We think of something and something else happens. Yes, it exactly happened to me today. I wanted to make Sweet potato paratha and made something else.  Never made any dish with sweet potato till date, all I did was boil the potatoes, peel the skin and eat as it is .  When Valli announced this theme to cook with " Root Vegetables", I wanted to make something different with these sweet potatoes. Thought of making Paratha with these yummy potatoes but I  ended up making stuffed poori.

I added all the ingredients to the boiled and mashed potato  and later realized that I over cooked the potatoes. Tried making parathas but the stuffing was coming out as I was rolling the paratha. Then I thought of making poori and stuff the potatoes and seal it from all the sides and deep fry them. Believe me or not my daughter who didn't want to eat parathas , had these fried poories  happily. They tasted awesome.

Here goes my 3rd and final post for week 2 under the theme "Root Vegetables".


Sweet potato 3 large
Chopped green chili 1 spoon
Chopped cilantro 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Amchur powder 1/4 spoon
Turmeric powder 1/2 spoon
Whole wheat flour 2 cups
Oil for deep frying


Add salt and 1 spoon oil to  wheat flour and mix well.
Add enough water to make a dough, dough should not be too soft nor too hard.
Cover and rest for 30 minutes.
Presser cook sweet potatoes.
Peel the skin off and mash it.
Add salt to taste, chopped green chili, cilantro, turmeric powder and amchur powder.
Mix well and keep aside for a minute.
Heat oil for deep frying the stuffed poories.
Take a small dumpling of the dough and roll it round using the rolling pin / belan.
Add 1 or 2 spoons of potato stuffing in the center. ( depending on the size of your poori).
Apply some water to the edges of the poori and fold / cover the stuffing completely from all the sides.
Make few stuffed poories at a time and deep fry them till crisp.
Serve hot with ketchup or hot sauce.

                                                         Note:   You can use maida / all purpose flour instead of wheat flour to make poori. As I already made a dough with wheat flour to make paratha, I used the same dough to make the poorirs. To make them nice  and crisp make a dough  which you make for samosa.                                                                        Check to see what my fellow    bloggers are cooking for BM 61.
