Biscuit Roti/ Stuffed Poori

Its been over a year I haven't blogged at all. After Stuti is born I really never looked into blogging and also cooking in that matter. I prepare something simple and quick dishes whenever I find time only to avoid eating food from outside. 

Last week was my husband's birthday and I decided to prepare Biscuit Roti for breakfast. Biscuit roti is stuffed poori. The stuffing I have mentioned below is how I follow. You can make variations to it according to your liking. One of my friend said she makes toor dal stuffing which I am yet to try. Last time when we had been to Mangalore we had Biscuit Roti from famous "Balli" on carstreet and my husband became an instant fan of it. My preparation surely did not taste as wonderful as Mangalore ones but was good.

1 cup maida
1 tablespoon oil
water as required

3 tablespoons sooji/semolina
2 tablespoons grated coconut
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 green chilies, chopped
1 teaspoon urad dal
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Pinch of asafoetida

1 tablespoon oil
Mustard seeds
2 red chilies
4-5 curry leaves, chopped

Oil for deep frying

Make a chapati like dough with maida, oil and salt.
In a bowl mix together the ingredients for stuffing.
Prepare a tempering with oil, mustard seeds, red chilies and chopped curry leaves. Add it to stuffing. Mix well. Do not add too much of salt as you would have added salt even to the dough.
Make small dumplings and roll like poori. Take a tablespoon of stuffing and place it in the middle. Fold the dumplings and roll it carefully.
Deep fry it until light brown.
Serve hot.

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 30 - 45 mins
