I just can't believe that it's been a week since I updated my blog! Whoa! See this is what happens when the 'Manavatti' ( gonna-be-bride) goes shopping! :D
It was actually shopping + a small vacation in Trivandrum. But lil did I know that I would come back with a terrible back pain. Went to the doc today and he said it was just a muscular pain...what ever ! All I know is I can't even brush my teeth! ACK!
This is one of my mom's signature snack and we always have atleast one packet ready in our freezer :) It is a super good make-ahead snack, all you need to do is thaw and fry them .I had tried making it 2 years ago for the first time, but it turned out to be something else ( shapewise ) BUT trust me the filling was delicious :)
Recipe source: My mom


For the wrapper:
Oil-1/2 cup
Salt-to taste
Water- as required

For the filling:
Chicken-250 g,boiled & shredded
Cabbage-250 g
Beans-250 g
Bell pepper-1 ,small
Ginger garlic paste-3 tbsp
Soya sauce-1 tbsp
Green chilli- 3-4
Aji-no-moto - a pinch, optional
Salt-to taste
Black pepper powder-to taste
Oil-5 tbsp

Oil for deep frying

For the wrapper:
  • Mix everthing together and form a soft dough. Leave it aside for 10 mins.
  • Divide them into lime sized balls and roll out into thin flat discs.
  • Heat a flat pan, and cook them only on one side. Make sure you don't end up with dark brown spots on them because they will be too dry to roll up.
  • Continue with the other wrappers in the same manner.

For the filling:
  • Heat oil, and saute ginger garlic paste.
  • Add the vegetables and mix well. Cover and cook them till they turn soft making sure you give them a good stir often.
  • Add the soya sauce & salt.
  • If you want it to be more spicy, add some black pepper powder.
  • Use this to fill the wrappers.

  • Put the filling on the uncooked side of the wrapper
  • Check this video to see the rolling up of the wrapper with the filling inside .
  • Deep fry and serve hot with a sauce of your choice.
I always try to stay away from these because I know I can never stop with 1 ! It remains crisp for few hours provided you don't leave them under a fan! :)

You can make these as tiny as our lil finger or slightly bigger. If it's the latter, you can cut them diagonally and serve!
