Chicken Pouch/Potli



Chicken Pouch/Potli

 Chicken pouch is a bite size appetizer and perfect for parties. It has a spicy meat and peas filling and the dough is shaped like a pouch.This recipe is inspired from the beggars Pouch/purse recipe which is normally bundles made with crepes or phyllo dough with different types of filling. Hear I have deep fried so that it will retain crispiness for longer time.You can try veg or non vegetarian fillings.

Ingredients
All Purpose flour- 2 cup
Egg white-1
Ghee- 1 tsp
Oil- 1 tsp
Salt- 1/3 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 tsp

For the filling
Minced chicken- 250 gms
Green peas- 1/2 cup
Onion- 1 medium
green chilly- 1
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder- a pinch
Garam masala- 3/4 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/3 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Coriander  leaves chopped a little
Lemon juice- 1 tsp


Take flour in a bowl and mix in sugar and salt. Pour ghee and oil and mix and rub the flour till it resembles wet sand. Beat egg white separately and pour into the flour along with 1/3 cup of water. Mix till you get a smooth and stiff dough. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 15 minutes.

To make the filling- Heat a pan with two tsp of oil and saute chopped onions,chopped green chilly and after a minute add salt and ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw flavor disappears.Add minced chicken and green peas and stir fry for about two minutes.Add turmeric powder and mix well. Cover and cook for another two minutes.  Add the rest of the spice powders,lemon juice and coriander leaves and stir fry till it is completely dry. Transfer into a bowl and allow to cool.

To make the pouches-Divide dough into lemon sized balls. Using a rolling pin flatten and make into circle,just like pooris. Wet your finger tips with water and go around the filling and the edges. Using your thumb and index finger make a circle in your hand and place the dough circle and gently press down a bit to make a depression. Place the filling inside and gently squeeze with the thumb and the index finger to seal close to the filling leaving  the outer edges to fall loosely. Fry in medium hot oil for about 5-6 minutes till it becomes golden brown on all side. Serve with tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup.


Try it
Hope you will all enjoy!
