For Cover:
1 cup Maida (All purpose Flour)
1 & half tbsp Semolina
2-3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
Salt to taste
1 & half cup Green peas
2 medium Potatoes
2-3 green chilies (Indian)
For Tempering:
3 tbsp Oil, 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds, pinch of Asafoetida, 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
3-4 curry leaves, crushed
2 Garlic flakes finely chopped
1/2 tsp Black pepper powder
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

1) In a mixing bowl mix semolina and Maida. In a small pan heat 2-3 tbsp oil to high temperature and pour in maida. Add salt to taste. Add water and make tight dough. Cover it till the stuffing gets ready.
2) Peel potatoes and cut into small cubes. Heat 3-4 tbsp oil in a nonstick frying pan. Add cumin seeds, pinch of asafoetida, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and curry leaves. Then add chopped garlic and chilies. Fry for few seconds. Turn the heat on medium, add potato cubes. Add salt to taste. Cover for 2-3 minutes. Give a nice stir. Then add peas and sauté. Cover the pan with lid to trap the steam and let potatoes and peas cook. Stir in between. This stuffing should be dry. So don’t add water. If it becomes sticky, it could affect the karanji's taste.
3) Once the stuffing is ready, add black pepper powder and mash with the masher.
4) Now we are going to make karanjis. Divide dough into 1 inch small balls. Roll it to a puri. On the half area of circle, place 1 tbsp stuffing. Don’t put stuffing on the edges. Cover the stuffing with other half circle area and make half moon shape. Press the edges and cut excessive dough with cutter.
5) Deep fry karanjis into oil. Enjoy these tasty karanjis with Tomato ketchup, Tamarind Chutney or green chutney.
