Salt to taste
Boil 11/2 cup of water on a medium to high heat in one pot.
When water is about to come to the boil, Add Papad Kharo, salt, Turmeric (haldi), Jeera, Ground Peanut, Ginger, Green Chili, Kapriya Flour Mix, Oil, and Yogurt.
Mix everything really well.
Turn off the stove, cover the pot with lid and let it stand till you prepare the steamer.
In the other big steaming pot, add enough water to steam Kapuriya, on a medium to high heat and set the steaming basket in. Cover the lid to boil water faster.
Coming back to the Kapuriya mixture, stir one more time and start shaping into circles.
Arrange prepared circles into the steaming pot. Cover and let it steam for about 15-20 minutes.
After 15-20 minutes, turn off the stove and let kapuriya set for about 5-8 minutes before serving. Serve hot steaming Kapuriya as it is or with Chutney.
My son loves to take in his lunch box. I use thermos to keep Kapuriya warm steamy and he really enjoys at school.
