recipe : for the filling
( any dry sabzi or samosa filling is good enough for this bun )
4 medium size potatoes cooked, peeled and mashed .
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 green chillies finely chopped
some coriander leaves for garnishing
2 tsp oil
salt as needed
1 tomato finely chopped
1-2 small onions finely chopped
some green peas,
1-2 chopped or grated carrots
1 tbsp pav bhaji masala or any garam masala
pinch of amchur masala powder or chaat masala
1/2 tbsp ginger garlic paste ( optional )
Take a pan, add some oil , heat and temper with cumin seeds , green chillies, add in chopped onions, a pinch of salt
to cook onions faster, add in choopped tomatoes, turmeric powder.
Mix well , add in cooked mashed potato mixture, adjust salt, add in the pav bhaji masala powder or garam masala or any sabzi masala , add the amchur powder ,
do not add any water, and the mixture must look combined well and smooth .it is better to keep the filling a little spicier because when we taste the final potato bun , we may find the filling taste is a bit reduced in spice, hence keep filling a little spicy and correct amount of salt , or lime juice .,
I have kept the filling simple but spicy .
Garnish with mint leaves chopped finely or chopped coriander leaves .
Allow the potato mixture to cool down well before placing in the prepared dough for making the buns .
You can also make these in round shape .
Do check my recent video on making the basic dough for paav buns and dinner rolls , how to knead etc given below
