For the urad dal stuffed puri, combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a stiff dough using enough water. Keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes. For the masala powder, combine all the ingredients in a broad non-stick pan and dry roast on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till it releases an aroma. Cool slightly and blend in a mixer to a fine powder. Keep aside. For the stuffing, clean, wash and soak the urad dal in water for 4 hours. Drain and blend in a mixer to a coarse paste using very little water. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the urad dal paste and salt and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously. Add the masala powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add the coriander, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute. Keep aside to cool. Divide the stuffing into 10 equal portions. Roll out one portion of the dough into a thin round of about 75 mm. (3”) diameter with the help of a little oil. Put one portion of the stuffing in the centre and close the edges to cover the stuffing completely. Roll out again into small puris with the help of a little oil. Repeat with the remaining portions and stuffing to make 9 more stuffed puris. Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the puris a few at a time till they turn golden brown in colour from both sides. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve hot with a sweet pickle.
