Batatyache Upavasache Wade ( Potato Chutney Wada)

Today is Sankashti Chaturthi and as it has come on tuesday it is also called Angaraki ( a Special auspicious day for Sankashti) .

I and my husband fast every month for sankashti and so made these chutney stuffed potato wadas for the fast.

They are easy and fun to make and equally tasty.

As most of the people observe a fast on this day thought of sharing my recipe with all of you. You all will definitely love this delicious snack.








Ingredients :

4 to  5 ..........................Pototoes ( Boiled )
1 and 1/2 cup................Shingada  Atta ( Water cress flour)
a small bunch .................coriander leaves
5 to 6 ..........................green chillies
1 /2 cup........................grated coconut
2 tsp..........................lemon juice
1 tsp........................sugar
salt
oil to fry

Method :

Remove the skin of the boiled potatoes and mash them.
Add the shingada flour and knead a soft but firm dough.
Now grind the coriander leaves, chillies and coconut adding very little or no water at all.
Add salt , sugar and lemon juice to it.
Take a ball of the kneaded dough and make a depression in it.





Now fill them with a spoonful of green chutney.
Close it from all sides and deep fry in the oil.
Serve with  sweet-tamarind-chutney and curds if you are having a fast.

    1. singhada is known as water cress in english and is used in dishes made during vrat . you can also use rajgira (amaranth seeds ) flour instead of it if making this dish on a day of fasting. Or can simply use all purpose flour.
