How to make Aloo Bakarwadi
Divide the dough into 3 portions, take one portion press it and make a ball. Place this ball on a board and using a rolling pin flatten it into a Puri The Puri should be thin like a Parantha and have a diameter of 8-10 inches. Place 3-4 tbsp Aloo stuffing on the Puri. As you leave a little portion of the edges on all sides of the Puri, press the stuffing with a spoon and spread it around evenly.

Once the stuffing is placed on the Puri, fold as you pick it up from one side and make a roll. Close the open ends by pressing them with your hands.

Cut the roll into ½ or ⅓  inch long pieces. After cutting all the pieces take one piece of Bakarwadi, apply dry Maida/Besan on its 2 ends and using your fingers stick the ends together. This is done so that the stuffing does not spill out while frying. Apply Maida/Besan to the remaining Bakarwadi and keep them aside. Bakarwadi is ready to fry.

Heat oil in a pan. Put Bakarwadi after the oil is properly heated. Put as many pieces that can fit in the pan at a time. Fry them on a low-mid flame till Bakarwadi turns brown on all sides then take them out. Similarly fry the remaining Bakarwadi pieces.

Soft, crunchy Aloo Bakarwadi is ready. Serve hot Aloo Bakarwadi with green Chutney, sweet Chutney. Finish Aloo Bakarwadi while they are still hot.
