15 Money Bags
Ingredients:
For Sheets:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil

A packet of readymade sheets(spring rolls sheets)

For the strips:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oil

For Filling:
5 Medium size boiled potatoes
1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup finely chopped ginger
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
1/2 cup roasted and grounded peanuts

1/4 cup each all-purpose flour and corn starch
Oil for frying

Please check (Measurements)

Process: Mix the ingredients of Homemade sheets with warm water, knead into a soft dough and roll it on a plastic mat very thin. Put in the freezer for nearly 30 minutes.
Mash the potatoes and mix all the ingredients well. Keep aside.

Knead the ingredients for strips with little water and make long strips from it. These strips will be used for tying around the readymade wrapping sheets.

Put 1/4 cup of cold water to the all-purpose, cornstarch mixture . Stir well and make a smooth paste

Heat oil in a big wok and start preparing the bags. Remove the sheets out and allow them to thaw for 5 minutes. Put a spoonful of filling in it, brush the paste in a circle around the filling and close the sheet by bringing them together.

Dip the base in the batter and fry it on Medium to low heat for nearly 5 minutes.

For ready-made sheets, follow the same procedure and while closing the ends, take one strip and tie it around the closing point. Fry in a similar manner these ones too. Once done place them on an absorbent paper or cloth to remove excessive oil.

The crispy and flavourful money bags are ready to serve.
