To make the puris, mix 1 cup of wheat flour with ½ cup of semolina, ½ tsp salt and some water in a bowl. Knead the mixture to make a smooth dough for the puris.
Make small balls from the dough and then flatten them. Cut small circles from the balls. Heat some oil in a pan and start frying these circles. Fry till they turn golden brown. The puris are now ready.
For the stuffing, mix 3 boiled and mashed potatoes, some chopped onion and 2 tbsp of coriander leaves in a bowl. Season them with ½ tsp cumin powder, ½ tsp chaat masala, ½ tsp chilli powder and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
For the flavoured water, blend ¼ cup of mint leaves, ½ cup of coriander leaves, 2 chillis and a small piece of tamarind. Add some water to this. Now add a pinch of asafoetida, 1 tsp cumin powder, some salt and 1 cup of cold water to this. Stir well.
Take the puri and make a small hole in the middle with your finger. Fill it with 1 tbsp of the prepared stuffing and then dip it in the flavoured water.
