Katori Chat

Katori chat:1)For the katori-

1 cup wheat flour

1 spn suji rava

Salt to taste

1 table spn oil/ghee

1/2 cup cold water.

Mix all the above and and using the cold water make a dough. It should be firm like puri dough.

Cover it with a wet cloth and keep aside.
2)To make the katori:

Take 4-5 vatis or katori’s and turn them upside down. Apply oil around the katoris.

Divide the dough into small balls and roll them into round rotis which are big enough to cover the katori’s.

Take a roti and put it over the oil smeared katoris and using your fingers try to cover the katori with the chapathi and make a katori.

Now heat some oil and when hot enough using a tong or pakkad slowly dip the katori into the oil and wait for it to be slightly pinkish in colour. 

Now with the help of a fork or knife slowly try to separate the steel katori and remove it from the oil. Keep turning the atta katori until its brown.

Remove n drain on a paper towel.

Follow the same steps with the remaining katori’s.
3).For the filling:

Red chutney- soak 2-3 dates, a small piece of jaggery and a small piece of tamarind ball and 2-3 red chillies along with salt.

After 15 mins grind to paste and before removing add in 1/4 spoon jeera a grind for 30 seconds.
