These went off so well today evening at work. My dad's co-workers really gobbled them up before our eyes. Just a few additions I made to the filling were: 1/2 tsp. of red chilli powder and 1/2 tsp. of mango powder. I also used the juice of 2 lemons and not 3. I omitted the sesame seeds and brown sugar{we like them spicier!}. I doubled the quantity of garam masala powder{4tsps}. As for salt, I used 1 1/2 tsps. Now coming to the dough part. I didn't use butter; we used oil instead as a substitute. I used black pepper powder as a substitute to the cayenne pepper. This made 20 patties for us. My cook helped me make this and refused to roll out the dough. He said it would stick to the rolling pin. So, instead, he pinched off small balls of the filling and then dipped them in the flour batter, and then shallow fried them till they were golden brown. This of course is much easier to do than rolling them out. I will try the rolling technique some day and update my review. Thanks for posting the recipe!
