by Anukriti Parasai

The ever-popular Indian fry bread recipe has made a niche for itself in the bread market all over the world. They're simple to make; there is no standing or rising time needed. They can be served at dinner parties, tea parties and in lunchrooms. You can make them at home using easy ingredients and play around with different fillings. Here is one of my fave green pea Indian fry bread recipe .

What you will need:

For the dough:

- 450 grams plain white flour

- 2 large spoons yogurt

- 1 tablespoon ghee (refined butter)

- 1 big spoon carom seeds

- Water to knead the dough

- 1 tablespoon salt

For the filling:

- 200 grams green peas

- 1/4 spoon garam masala

- 4 green chilies

- 1 small spoon cumin seeds

- 1 small spoon dry mango powder

- 1 tablespoon salt


- In a mixing bowl, take the flour.

- In a spoon, warm the ghee till hot.

- Tip the ghee over the flour.

- Mix the flour and ghee to get a crumbly mix.

- Add the salt to the mix and combine well.

- Add the carom seeds and blend well.

- Add the yogurt and mix well to get a hard dough.

- Sprinkle a little water on the dough and knead to a soft dough.

- Cover with a cloth and put aside.

- Boil and drain the green peas.

- Put them in a mixer and grind them roughly.

- Chop the green chilies in small pieces.

- In a frying pan, take some oil and add the cut green chilies and cumin seeds.

- Fry for 2 minutes.

- Now add the garam masala powder to it and fry for another 1/2 minute.

- Add the peas and salt and mix all the ingredients well.

- Fry until the mix is dry enough to make soft balls.

- Take from the heat and put aside.

- Make tiny balls out of the dough (about 22).

- Roll out a ball of dough to a 3-inch round bread.

- Take 1 1/2 little spoons of the pea stuffing and put it in the center of the rolled-out dough.

- Take the edges of the dough and seal the stuffing inside.

- Softly roll out the stuffed dough to a thin round.

- Do this with the rest of the dough balls.

- Heat some oil in a frying pan.

- Fry the prepared bread in the oil at medium heat until golden brown on each side.

- Remove and drain on an absorbent paper hand towel.

- Serve hot with tamarind chutney and sweet and sour sauce.

The fry bread tastes positively delectable with tomato subzi (cooked tomato in gravy).

You can adjust the amount of chilies and salt according to your taste.
