Prepare stuffing by heating 1 Tbsp. oil in a wok^. Add onions, garlic and chilies to hot oil. Saute for about 7 minutes. Add turmeric, cumin and coriander. Mix well. Add peas and let the mixture cook and blend well. Add boiled potatoes. Mash the mixture, sprinkle salt to taste, add coriander. Add the garam masala at this point. Remove from heat and cool. Roll the mixture into golf size balls.

Place the cooked stuffing inside the semi-circle dough. Close by folding the tips of the semi-circle together. Seal with a little water and flour paste, press down edges.

Drop the finished stuffed shells into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Maintain temperature to medium high so the dough cooks evenly.
