Matar Pattice (pea Puff)

Matar pattice is my favourite snack from Monginis (a famous chain of fast foods in Kolkata). They make lovely matar pattice. One day I tried making it myself, although I could not make the puff as soft as they do, but the taste of the stuffing was same. Here I am sharing this awesome recipe which you can also make at home easily.

To make puffs, take maida in a bowl, add salt and two-three tablespoon of oil and mix.

Take small portions from this dough and roll it over a rolling spin.

Heat oil in a pan and slowly fry each puff over a medium heat till it turns light brown.
