"This is the first Hedhika (Short Eats) that my son highly enjoyed during Ramadan. Potatoes are one of his favorite staples so this was something extremely delicious for him."

Ingredients for Stuffing:

- 1 can green peas

- 1 canned tuna chunked in oil

- 2 small can of tomato paste

- 3 large potatoes (boiled)

- 1 large onion (finely chopped)

- 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)

- 1 scotch bonnet pepper

- Curry leaves to taste (finely chopped)

- Salt to taste

- A splash of Chili and Garlic sauce to enhance flavor

Ingredients for Dough:

- 1 cup of sifted flour

- 3 tablespoon of oil

- Boiled water

- Salt to taste

- A packet of bread crumbs

Directions for Stuffing:

- Caramelize the onion, garlic, curry leaves and spices with minimal oil in pan

- Once the onion displays a soft bronze color, add the remaining ingredients into the pan with a small amount of fish oil from the can. Cook in low heat

Note: A couple of crushed dried chili can be added to the mix to boost the flavor if preferred

Directions for Dough:

- Mix the ingredients together and knead the dough until the mixture of flour becomes non-sticky dough

- Place the dough in a closed container and let it sit for about 3 minutes

- After three minutes, form small balls approximately 1.5cm in diameter from the dough and roll it flatly round
