Making the Dough

Set the dough aside, covered with a moist cloth, while we prepare the filling.
Combine the mashed potatoes, finely sliced onions, green chilies, cumin seeds, garam masala, and salt in a mixing bowl.

Fill the middle with a heaping scoop of the potato filling.
Gather the dough’s edges around the filling, closing it tightly.
