Puri and Curry All-in-One

I wish I had discovered this earlier.  I guess it is nothing new.  But would have been a convenient finger food while the kids were younger, a lunch - picnic - journey snack.  Makes it easier to carry as compared to Puris and Curry separately packed, plates, spoons and stuff.

Puri -
Wheat Flour
Salt - to taste
A spoon of oil
And oil for deep frying.

Add sufficient water to make a slightly tough dough.  Keep covered till use. 

Potato -3 large, boiled
Onion - 1 - diced
Green chilies - 2 - finely diced ( can avoid and add the chili powder instead)
Red chili powder - 1 tsp ( optional)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few

In a wok heat the oil, add the mustard - allow to splutter, add curry leaves.
Add the onion.  Saute till trasparent along with the chili
Add mashed potato
And the powders, salt
Mix .  Keep a while. 
Remove from stove.

Roll out puri.
Add a little potato curry in the center of puri
Fold puri over the curry.
Roll again.
Fry in oil.

Drain well. 
Eat hot.
Or pack in foil along with a little pickle and eat later.
