Divide the dough into small portions and roll them into thin discs (approximately 2-3 inches in diameter).

Fry the puris one by one until they turn golden brown and crispy.
Remove them from the oil and drain on a paper towel.

In a bowl, mix the mashed potatoes, boiled chickpeas, chopped onions, chopped coriander leaves, roasted cumin powder, chaat masala, and salt.
Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.
Pani (spicy water):

In a blender, combine mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chili, ginger, tamarind pulp, roasted cumin powder, chaat masala, black salt, and regular salt.
Blend everything together with a little water to make a smooth paste.
Transfer the paste to a large bowl and add chilled water.
Mix well and adjust the flavors according to your preference.

Sweet chutney:

In a small saucepan, combine tamarind pulp, dates, jaggery or brown sugar, roasted cumin powder, red chili powder, and salt.
Add a little water and cook the mixture on low heat until the dates soften and the chutney thickens.

Fill the puris with a spoonful of the potato-chickpea filling.
Drizzle some sweet chutney and spicy pani into each puri and enjoy pani puri or fuchka.
