Process

For the stuffing

  • place the coriander, green chillies, ginger, garlic, salt and lemon juice in a blender and
    grind into a paste.
  • Heat the oil in a pan. Add the paste and fry for a minute.
    Add the shredded chicken and fry for a little bit longer. Check the seasoning and adjust as
    required.
  • Make sure the mixture is completely dry.
    Remove from heat and keep aside to cool down.

For the litti

  • sieve the flour into a bowl.
    Add the ghee, carom seeds, baking soda and salt to this.
  • Add the yoghurt into the mixture and knead into a soft dough. Add some warm water, if required.
  • Cover the dough with cling film and keep it aside for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Once ready, shape the dough into medium size individual portions.
  • Use your fingers to expand each piece into a circle, 2-3’ in diameter.
    Place 2 tsp of the stuffing in it, wrap up the dough piece around it, close from all sides and flatten it a bit. Repeat with the other portions.
  • Heat the oil in a deep pan; fry the littis, a few at a time, till golden brown. Remove and drain the excess oil on absorbent kitchen towel.
  • For the mash, heat the mustard oil in a pan. Add the red chillies and let it release its flavour into the oil.
  • Add the onion and garlic and fry till golden brown.
  • Add the spice powders and cook for a minute more.
  • Add the potato mash to this and mix well.
  • Check for seasoning and adjust as required.
