Urad Dal Kachori | Khasta Urad Dal Kachori

Posted by

An irresistible crispy, flaky and yummy Khasta Urad Dal Kachori is my all time favorite and these Kachoris are soooo good that you can have it with tamarind chutney/ mint-coriander chutney/ tomato ketchup or just eat it with your cup of hot tea. Best to have it in rainy season or in winters with your garma- garam masala chai. 🙂
You can even make aloo ki sabji to have it with these crispy and flaky Kachoris. Preparing the kachoris takes time so you can make aloo ki sabji in advance.

then add coriander powder, red chili powder, garam masala, and amchur. Sauté the spices for 10-15secs

Step 4- Add in dal along with the spices and mix well with spatula

then add gram flour and fry until the gram flour is cooked. Now the dal mixture will look crumbly. Turn off the flame and let the dal mixture cools completely

Preparing Kachoris and frying
Step 5- Divide the dough into small equal portions. Apply some oil on the rolling board and roll the dough like a poori

Step 6- Place 1 tbsp of stuffing in the center and close from the edges. Make sure the stuffing doesn’t come out and slightly roll in a poori shape

Step 7- Heat oil in a deep pan. Check the oil temperature by adding a tiny piece of dough. Oil should be medium hot. If the piece of dough comes steadily and gradually the oil is perfectly hot for the kachoris. Deep fry the kachoris on medium flame to get crispy and flaky kachoris
When the kachori is brown from the one side turn over and cook the other side until brown and crisp. Turn and cook more if required and remove on a kitchen towel

Serve and enjoy this Urad Dal Kachori with tamarind chutney/ mint-coriander chutney and masala chai. 🙂
