Potatoes and pomegranate seed Kachoris

Since Diwali is around,  at almost every. Indian family sweet and savory preparation stafts atleast a week before the Diwali day. So,  how could I escape this opportunity to prepare some of my fav.  Snacks..
I was crying for something  spicy and Tangy,  so thought of turning the regular Masala Kachoris in something very unusual.  So, I invented these anardana Kachoris which came absolutely perfect as per my taste.  And when I served them to my hubby and asked him to guess the secret ingredients,  he said the Kachoris were stunning but no guesses on the secret ingredients.

- 1/4 cup fine rava/semolina

For dough
1. In a bowl take flour,  rava,  salt oil,  carrom seeds, fenugreek leaves together.
2. Mix everything well,  the texture would be like bread crumbs.
3. Now, using water knead the dough which is neither to firm Nor to soft. 
4. Once she dough is ready,  let it rest for 5 minutes.

6. With the help of rolling pin,  roll each ball in small chapati and put almost 1 tsp of filling Nd close it selling the edges nicely.
