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

Take the green moong dal in big vessel. Rinse it 3-4 times with water then soak it in enough water for 2 hours.

After 2 hours drain the soaked moong dal then transfer it to the kadai. Add some salt and pour 1 cup of water.

Turn on the heat, when moong dal starts to boil simmer the flame and cook for 6-7 minutes (use lid while cooking).

Meanwhile take coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, ginger powder, red chili powder, cumin seeds, hing, chaat masala and amchur powder in a blender then blend to the course powder. Keep it aside.

Now after 6-7 minutes turn off the heat, here moong dal should be cooked but farm, then drain out the water. (you can use this water for cooking dal, making soup and in curries).

Now take this cooked and completely drained moong dal in bowl then add roasted besan, ginger – garlic, salt, course powder (that we made) and 1 tsp ghee, mix them together with your hand. Now stuffing is ready keep it aside.

For making Kachori

Devoid dough in 22 – 23 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 of 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 kachoris will not cook from inside, if oil is less hot kachoris will become so oily.

If you are not using amchur add lemon juice.
