The ever-popular Indian fry bread recipe has made a gap for itself in the bread market all over the world. They are simple to make; there is no standing or rising time needed. They can be served at dinner parties, tea parties and in lunchrooms. You can make them at home using easy ingredients and play around with different fillings. Here is one of my fave green pea Indian fry bread recipe .

What you'll need:

For the dough:

- 450 grams plain bleached flour

- 2 large spoons yogurt

- 1 tablespoon ghee (refined butter)

- 1 tablespoon carom seeds

- Water to knead the dough

- 1 tablespoon salt

For the filling:

- 200 grams green peas

- 1/4 teaspoon garam masala

- 4 green chilies

- 1 small spoon cumin seeds

- 1 teaspoon dry mango powder

- 1 tablespoon salt


- In a mixing bowl, take the flour.

- In a spoon, warm the ghee till hot.

- Tip the ghee over the flour.

- Mix the flour and ghee to get a crumbling mix.

- Add the salt to the mix and blend well.

- Add the carom seeds and mix well.

- Add the yogurt and mix well to get a hard dough.

- Scatter a little water on the dough and knead to a soft dough.

- Cover with a fabric and put aside.

- Boil and drain the green peas.

- Put them in a mixer and grind them coarsely.

- Chop the green chilies in little pieces.

- In a frying pan, take some oil and add the chopped green chilies and cumin seeds.

- Fry for two minutes.

- Now add the garam masala powder to it and fry for another 1/2 minute.

- Add the peas and salt and mix all of the ingredients well.

- Fry until the mix is dry enough to make soft balls.

- Remove from the heat and set aside.

- Make little balls out of the dough (about 22).

- Roll out a ball of dough to a 3-inch round bread.

- Take 1 1/2 teaspoons of the pea stuffing and put it in the middle of the rolled-out dough.

- Take the perimeters of the dough and seal the stuffing within.

- Delicately roll out the stuffed dough to a thin round.

- Do this with the remainder of the dough balls.

- Heat some oil in a frying pan.

- Fry the prepared bread in the oil at middle heat till golden brown on each side.

- Remove and drain on an absorbent disposable hand towel.

- Serve hot with tamarind chutney and sweet and sour sauce.

The fry bread tastes absolutely delicious with tomato subzi (cooked tomato in gravy).

You can adjust the quantity of chilies and salt according to your taste.
