Veg patty stuffed wid Chane ki Daal (chane ki daal bharwa tiki)

I belong to Lucknow, which is a place of mouthwatering chaat as Uttar Pradesh is the origin of such delicacies.
I prepare these at home quiet often and it makes a very good snack in a party also.

For the patty:
4 Boiled Potatoes
Salt to taste
2 tbsp cornflour

For the Filling:
1/2 cup boiled chana dal
1 medium sized onion(finely chopped)
2 green chillies (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp mango powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp red chilly powder
Salt to taste
Coriander (chopped)
3 tbsp ghee 
Note: you can use refined oil also to fry the patties

For the topping:
1 small sized onion (chopped)

  • Mash the potatoes. Add in the salt + cornflour. Mix it well. Keep it aside.
  • Now pressure cook the chana dal, with salt and 1 cup of water. This will take 7-8 minutes.
  • After this take the dal out from the pressure cooker, in a bowl add in the chopped onions + green chillies + ginger + cumin powder + coriander powder + red chilly powder + mango powder + garam masala powder.
  • Mix all these well.
  • Now divide the potatoes into round shaped tikis (patties).
  • In between of each of the patty, add a portion (11/2 tbsp of chana dal ).
  • Make it in a round shape and then flatten it.
  • Heat ghee in a pan, just enough to fry the patty.
  • Put the patty in it.
  • Fry till it changes color and is cooked well.
For Serving.

  • Take a plate, cut the patty into equal halves from between. (do the same with all of them)
  • Place the patty on the plate now on top of it, spread tamarind chutney, coriander chutney, chopped onions chopped coriander and some lime juice.
