For the Dough:
Mix the flour and salt together. Gradually while mixing add in the water and oil until the dough forms a ball. Don’t add the water all at once, you may use slightly less water or may need more. If you do it slowly you will come up with the right consistency.
Knead the dough for 10 minutes
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a cloth, let rest for one hour.
Scrub the potato clean and put in pot of lightly salted water.
Let boil until tender (approx. 30 minutes or so depending on the size of the potato)
When the potato is tender, drain and set aside to cool
Peel the potato and mash it up with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Get it as smooth as possible.
Add in the scallions and cilantro and mix together well.
Assembling the Bolani:
Cut the dough into four equal pieces and make them into a ball.
Put flour down on your work surface and roll out the dough into a circle about 10-12 inches. Thin to win! Get them as thin as you can.
Put about ½ cup of the potato filling on one half of the dough, leaving about a ¼ inch border around the rim.
Fold the dough over the filling and press to seal. Flatten slightly with your fingers.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan, Brown the Bolani two at a time pan. Cook until golden brown and then flip over to brown the other side. Fry just a couple of minutes on each side.
Remove Bolani from the Frying pan onto a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
