Method to Prepare:

For the dough:
Sieve flours with the salt. Add the ghee and mix well. Add enough water and make a semi-soft dough. Keep aside.

For the stuffing:
Mash the potatoes coarsely or cut into very small pieces. Keep aside. Heat the ghee in a vessel, add the cumin seeds and onion; and fry for at least 3 minutes. Add the green chillies and fry again for 1 minute. Add the potatoes, salt, coriander, chilli powder and amchur powder. Mix well and cook for 1 minute. Cook the mixture. Keep aside.
