Potato Pies-Aloo Pies


For the filling:

3 medium sized potatoes, cooked in microwave or boiled and mashed

1 tsp Jeera or cumin seeds

6-7 garlic cloves

1/2 cup coriander leaves, packed tightly

8-10 green chillies

black pepper, hot sauce are also added, which we have omitted

For dough:

3-4 cups of all purpose flour

2-3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp oil

enough water to knead into dough

(I have seen some recipes with yeast too, but I have never added yeast to my dough)


For dough:

Knead all the ingredients together into a soft dough and keep aside for at least 20 min.

For filling:

Grind the Jeera, garlic, coriander leaves and green chilli into a paste and add this to the mashed potato with salt and mix together till evenly mixed.


Take a small golf sized ball of dough, roll it out into an oval shape.

Put some filling in the center of the dough.

Using some water, seal the edges.

When the oil is hot enough (not smoking hot), drop the pies in. They will fluff up and turn golden. Turn over to get even coloring on both sides.

Remove onto a paper napkin.

Serve hot with tomato sauce, chilli sauce, ketchup. Enjoy!!!
