Are you in search for an appetizer for your next gathering than look no more? These delicious and crunchy Stuffed Potato Cigars will outshine all other appetizers at your party. Not only are they easy to make, they tastes amazing too!
These stuffed potato cigars is a very old recipe and I have been entertaining my family and friends for years. This recipe has a crispy outer layer and is soft and spicy on the inside – a guaranteed crowd pleaser recipe at every gathering, potluck or picnic.
Best part, it’s the ultimate make-ahead appetizer. A day before, shape and stuff cigars. Seal them in a plastic bag and store overnight. Next day cook as directed and serve.
Now, onto the recipe!
Boiled and mashed peas cooked with spices are rolled up in potato-paneer dough and shallow fried until brown and crispy. Wondering what will bind the potato-paneer mixture? Well, there is a secret ingredient in the recipe and that will hold the potato-paneer mixture and that’s – powdered Flattened rice (poha). Poha (flattened rice) when combined with potato-paneer will make a firm dough.
Can’t find poha or flattened rice, use oats flour as a substitute.
The secret to perfect cigars lies in the dough. If the dough is sticky, the whole recipe will become a mess. So before you advance to the next step (prepare filling) make sure the dough is smooth and silky.
Proceed with the filling directions and stuff the cigars. Fold and seal all the edges. Roll until it shapes like a log. Heat oil and shallow fry until brown and crispy. Serve hot with your favorite dip or chutney.
