  1. To make the dough, measure all-purpose flour and place in a mixing bowl. Throw in fine semolina.
  2. Add salt and oil. Add some water, then knead to make a firm and smooth dough. Cover the dough and set aside for at least 30 minutes. Gently knead it once again while making the pooris.
  3. Place mashed potatoes in a separate bowl. Add all the ingredients for making the stuffing. Mash well so that there won't be any lumps in it.
  4. Pinch out a lemon-sized ball of dough. Make a small disc by rolling it with a rolling pin. If you want, use some all-purpose flour for the dusting.
  5. Put a tablespoon of potato filling in the center. Join the edges of the disc to cover the filling. Seal the top. Next, flatten the disc along with the stuffing. Refer to the photos below for examples.
  6. Roll it to make a 3 1/2 inch diameter disc. Make all the discs in the same way.
  7. Next, heat oil for deep-frying. Fry these discs one by one, until each one is crispy and golden brown.
  8. As each disc finishes frying, place it on an absorbent paper towel.
