Koshimbiri Karanji

Kanadigas love Koshimbiri seen in the picture a salad made with soaked lentils and veggies. I get invited to a lot of social gatherings and this is a ubiquitous one. I thought why not try to make a karanji with it. Karanji is a stuffed pastry made with sweet or spicy filling in Maharashtra.

1 cup moog dal soaked for 1 hr and drained
1 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup grated raw mango
1 tablespoon grated fresh coconut
1 handful cilantro
3/4 green chilies chopped
salt to taste

1 cup Chapati dough

Mix all the ingredients to make this salad and keep aside. Now roll out chapati a little bigger than a puri. Stuff the Koshimbiri, seal the curved edge and roast on the girdle with a little oil. Turn over and roast the other side. Serve hot with coconut chutney or ketchup if you are too lazy to make a chutney.
