Here I have made the filling using beef.The recipe for this is:
(cooked with a little chilly powder and salt;cooled and then shredded) 21/2 cups
Onion 6 med(thinly sliced)
Garlic cloves 10(finely chopped)
Ginger 2'' piece( '' '' )
Green chillies 5 ( '' '' )
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder
(homemade) 1/2 tsp
Fennel seeds powder 1/4 tsp
Salt accord.to taste
Curry leaves 2 sprigs
Oil 2tblsp+ for deep frying
Preparing the Filling
-Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan and add the onions
-Saute well and add the chopped ginger garlic and green chillies
-When the onions are done, add all the powders : garam masala,turmeric, fennel seeds powder and salt.
-Now add the shredded meat ,curry leaves and mix all well for 2-3 minutes.Off the flame.
For the dough
All purpose flour(maida)
or wheat flour(I used wheat flour;flour no:2)
Water 3/4 cup( or as needed)
Oil 1 tblsp
Salt accord. to taste
-In a bowl add flour,salt and oil,mix properly.
-Now adding water make a medium soft dough.
-Make small balls out of the dough and flatten it (like pooris) using a rolling pin.
-You can shape this in 2 ways :1st way : you can apply little water on the edges of the poori ,add the filling ,fold it in a crescent shape press the edges with your fingers and seal and make patterns on the sides by pressing it with a fork.
2nd way : using (crescent shape) molds.Here I used this mold,so it was easy.
-Place the poori on the mold ,add the filling on one side,close,seal and shape them (see image below)
-Now do the same with the rest of the dough and filling.
-Heat oil in a Kadai and deep fry these on medium flame till it turns golden brown on both the sides.
-Drain on tissue paper and serve with a cup of tea.
