  • To make the puff balls, add all ingredients to a bowl, add water and mix to get pancake batter consistency. Add water slowly as required.  ( check out the video below for reference )

  • Now grease the Puff Ball Pan with cooking oil and add 1 tbsp of batter to each ball. Let cook for 3-4 mins on medium flame. Now turn the ball with a spoon and let cook for 3 more minutes. 

  • Once both sides of the ball are well cooked, remove from pan and serve hot with sauce!

  • For the sauce, in a saute pan, add 2 tbsp of cooking oil. When the oil is hot, add cumin seeds, chopped garlic, chopped Jalapeno and saute for 2 mins on medium flame. 

  • Now add chopped tomato and cook for 4 mins or till tomatoes turn mushy on medium flame. 

  • Add salt as required and turn off the flame.

  • Once tomatoes come to room temperature, transfer the mixture to a blender, add roasted peanuts and blend to get smooth consistency.

  • Add more peanuts to reduce the spice level.

  • Now transfer to a serving bowl and add, chopped cilantro & finely chopped onion. ( adding uncooked onion gives little crunch )

  • Serve with above puff balls or tortilla chips!

VARIATION : Try green tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes for sauce. Try using oat flour or buckwheat flour instead of semolina.

STORAGE : Puff balls are better served immediately. Can store sauce in refrigerator for 2-3 days.
