Leftover Potlis !

This one looks very much like deep fried dimsums (momo). The filling can be just anything. Any damn thing! I generally make this when am left with only two pieces of chicken and a bit of gravy ( murgir jhol). This again,takes almost twenty minutes to make, and is good to go with tea!

Things you will need:
(for the filling)
leftover chicken and the gravy (or whatsoever)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 small potato, peeled boiled and mashed
a pinch of salt
a pinch of chat masala
(for the outer crust)
2 cups of flour
a spoonful of oil
salt to taste
a pinch of chilly powder (optional)
and of course, oil for deep frying!

how to do it:
With two forks, (or your hands) shred the chicken and mix it with the gravy.
Fry the onion till it's translucent, mix it with the chicken.
The mashed potato as well, along with the seasoning.
Keep it aside.
In a separate bowl knead the flour and the other ingredients into a soft dough.
With the rolling pin, make thick circles out of it. Diameter should be about 4 to 5 inches.
Stuff the dough with the filling.
Moisten the edge of the circles with a bit of water and twist them into small bundles.
They should look like "potlis". That's the whole point.
Deep fry them until they turn a bright shade of golden brown.
