Chocolate stuffed Rolls / Puris

A little trivia:
Although you'd never know it from the taste, chocolate comes from the Aztec word xocolatl, meaning "bitter water." Montezuma, the king of the Aztecs, supposedly drank 50 golden goblets of it every day, as he believed it was an aphrodisiac. A tropical cocoa bean called Theobroma (meaning "food of the gods") cacao is the source of this delicious confection.

This is my entry to Poornima's FLOC event.

I was thinking what to do for this event and came across Sanjeev Kapoor's "CHOCOLATE SPRING ROLLS" recipe. Did some modifications to it and here are my Chocolate rolls.

You need:

Dark chocolate, grated 1 cup
Almonds 10-12 - lightly roasted and chopped
Cream - 1 tbsp
Vanilla ice cream 4 scoops

Maida - 1 cup
Butter - 1 tbsp at room temp
Cornflour 1 tbsp
Oil to deep fry

Take Maida in a bowl. Add salt and butter and sufficient chilled water and knead into a medium soft dough.
Divide into small balls.
Combine cornflour with two tablespoons of water to make a thick paste.
Mix the chopped almonds, grated chocolate and cream into a non-watery mixture.

To prepare the rolls, roll out the balls into a rectangle with rolling pins (or roll it into a cicle and cut the sides ti get a rectangle).
Place a spoonful of the chocolate mixture on one corner of the rectangle and roll it up to enclose the filling completely.
Seal the edges using cornflour paste.

To prepare the puris, roll out the ball into a circle
Spread the mixture evenly on the circle leaving an 1/2 inch border. Place another circle on top of this.
Seal the edges using cornflour paste.

Similarly prepare the remaining balls.
Heat sufficient oil in a kadai and deep-fry the puris and rolls till golden brown and crisp.
Remove and drain onto an absorbent paper and keep aside.
Serve with vanilla icecream
