Potatoes and Spices
2 Peeled and grated potatoes, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp chilli powder, coriander leaves.
Then wash and peel potatoes, grate them in a large holed grater when you are grating put these grated potatoes in a bowl of water this helps in potatoes not changing colour, Wash these grated potatoes at least twice this will remove some of the starch which helps in potatoes getting mushy (sticky). Drain the water completely and leave them for few minutes, to this add all the other ingredients listed under Potatoes and spices.
Now both the things are ready to be mixed together, that is mix this potatoes into the ready stiff dough. this makes the dough very soft, keep kneading for few minutes, keep rice flour next to you, dip your hands in it once take it out, this helps in gathering the dough well enough for kneading and helps the dough not sticking to your hand.
Take 2 to 3 tbsp of rice flour, coat the dough with it and leave it until needed say around an hour or so.
HOW TO MAKE THE CUPS
MY NOTES :
As I had no idea when I started what I was doing and started adding ingredients, I made a long process for my masala cups, what I would suggest to you is sieve all the flours ready add the right amount of seasonings, then grate the potatoes (just make sure to do all the things I have suggested for the potatoes,), add these also to the flours, mix them all well together, leave it for few minutes, so potatoes are giving out water, you would know how much water you need to add to make it into a nice pliable dough, knead it for few minutes and keep it aside for an hour, then carry on with the rest of the process as said above.
VERDICT: My kids and hubby just loved it, they said it was different and very tasty.., only Son said I could have made it more spicier..
