Method

For making dough

In a vessel take wheat flour, maida, rava, ghee/oil and salt.

Mix them well.

Add water and make medium tight dough.

Cover with any plate or a damp cloth and keep aside for 20 mins.

After 20 mins again fold dough with hands and make dough little soft, if needed apply some oil on your hands. Keep aside. (do not add water)

For making stuffing

In a blander take all the ingredients under ‘for making stuffing’ except oil, salt and besan.

If needed add 1-2 tsp of water.

And blend them coarsely or semi coarsely.

Heat kadai and dry roast besan until light brown. Keep aside.

Heat oil in same kadai add coarsely paste that we made and fry it for 2 mins on medium flame, keep stirring.

Add besan and salt, switch off the flame and mix them well. Keep aside. (you can add salt while grinding too)

For making Kachori

Devoid dough in 13-14 equal sized ball.

Make them flat with fingers or with the rolling pin. Sides should be little thick than center.

Add 1 to ½ tbsp to the stuffing in the center. Cover the stuffing with remaining dough part. (see pics)

roll into 4-5 inch kachori.

Follow the same method for other kachoris.

Now heat oil at medium heat, deep fry the kachoris till they become golden and crisp over low – medium heat.

Serve kachoris with tomato- coriander chutney or green chutney.

Tips

Adding ghee/oil for moyan is very important for making crisp and flaky kachoris.

Dough should not be hard or too soft, so add water slowly.

Maintaining medium heat oil is also very important if oil is too hot The kachoris will not cook from inside, if oil is less hot the kachoris will become so oily.

If you are not using amchur add lemon juice.
