01 Heat the pan and add the cumin seeds. Once they start to sizzle add the chilli, salt and the potatoes. Cover and cook for 10 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

02 Then throw in the spinach leaves, cover and cook for another 5-10 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. Slightly crush the peanuts in a pestle and mortar and sprinkle on the potatoes.

03 In a bowl mix the flours and slowly add the water until you get a soft dough. You might not need all of it so add the water slowly. Knead it for a couple of minutes, cover and leave it to rest for 15 minutes.

04 Divide the dough into 15-16 small portions. Roll each portion into small 2-3 inch circles.

05 Heat oil in a pan and slowly add the puri into the oil and fry for a minute on each side until golden.

Serve it hot with the potato and spinach sabji.
