Most of the time oil and the masala from the pickle remains back. This comes to me quite handy when I want to make a quick spicy dish. Just add some spoons of it to the vegetable or meat or fish and it gives a achari flavour to it. Today I have made Achari Sattu Ki Puri using this achar masala. This Puri is quite flavourful and can be eaten with a cup of tea or accompanied with some potato bhaji.
1 cup Sattu
2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
4 tbsp leftover Oil and Masala from any Achar / Pickle
1/2 tsp Carom seeds
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry the puris
Take a mixing bowl. Add the Sattu, All purpose flour, salt, turmeric powder, carom seeds and 3 tbsp of left over achar masala. Mix all the ingredients together well. Add water little at a time to get a semi hard dough. Knead it well. Add the remaining achar masala, knead it for 2 minutes more. Cover and keep it aside for 15 minutes. Make lime size equal portions. Heat the oil for frying the puris. Take a portion, apply little oil on the rolling board. Roll out the dough in to round shape disc. Fry the puri until golden brown on both the sides. Remove it on an absorbent paper. Repeat the process with the remaining portions. Serve it hot with aloo tarkari.
