Kachori Sheet
Step 1- Mix black caraway seeds, salt and ghee in all purpose flour in a large bowl
Step 2- Using water make a soft dough. Don’t add more water. I have used only 2 tbsp of water to make dough
Step 3- Using wet cloth cover the dough and keep aside for 30mins
Step 1- Mash the boiled potato and peas in separate bowls
Step 2- Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds and saute for 15secs then add ginger-chili paste and fry for a minute on low flame
Step 3- Add the mashed green peas and add all the spices (coriander powder, chaat masala, amchur powder, fennel powder and turmeric powder) and saute for another 2minutes
Step 4- Add besan, mashed potato and add salt. Mix well and saute for 30secs. Turn off the flame and keep aside the filling
Shaping and deep frying
Step 1- Make equal size small balls from the dough and roll each ball like pooris
Step 2- Fill 1 Tbsp aloo-matar filling in each poori and apply water on the edges of poori and close from the tip
Make sure there is no way left for fillings to come out while deep frying
Step 3- Now using your palm again roll them like balls and press gently and cover all with the wet cloth
Step 4- Heat oil in a deep frying pan and fry the kachoris till golden brown on medium flame
If the kachoris are fried on high flame they will turn soft and will not be crispy
Baked kachoris You can even bake the kachoris. Preheat oven at 180ºC , brush some oil on the kachoris and cook in oven for 20mins. Flip the kachori and cook for another 15mins and serve
Step 5- Turn off the flame and remove the kachoris on kitchen towel to remove the extra oil from the kachoris
