This North Indian recipe is prepared using gram flour, papdi, sev, potato, tomato, onion, sweet tamarind sauce and a melange of spices.

1 1/2 cup gram flour (besan)
1 1/2 cup refined oil
For Filling
2 medium boiled potato
2 medium onion
1/4 cup sev

salt as required:
1 teaspoon chaat masala
2 medium tomato
15 papdi
4 tablespoon sweet tamarind sauce
1 teaspoon chilli powder
For Dough
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon chilli powder
salt as required
1 teaspoon refined oil
water as required

For Garnishing:
coriander leaves as required

Step 1
In a large bowl, add gram flour, turmeric, oil, salt and chilli powder. Mix all the ingredients without adding any water first. Then add water little by little and knead into a soft dough. Cover the dough and keep aside.

Step 2
Take a small ball of the dough and roll as thin as possible using a rolling pin. With the help of round cookie cutter cut out circles. Now, place the cut out dough in muffin tray and shape the cut out in to a bowl. Repeat the process with rest of the dough.

Step 3
Heat oil in a kadhai. Drop 3 to 4 shells at a time, reduce flame and fry until light golden brown. Don’t fry for too long as they tend to gain more colour once out and drained for a while. Store these in an air tight container.

Step 4
In a bowl, add all the chopped vegetables. Crush the papdi and add both papdi and sev into the bowl. Then, add all the spices and mix well. Add the sweet tamarind sauce and toss well all the ingredients.

Step 5
When ready to serve, top each of the besan katoris with this vegetable and papdi filling, and sprinkle some fresh coriander on top. Serve them on a platter.
