Spicy Green Peas Kachori

For me, to do an authentic recipe is so much thrilling and exciting and if the end results are good, then it is very satisfying. For this month’s SNC Challenge Sanoli challenged us to do this spicy kachori and dum aloo. SNC Challenge is a brain child of Divya and we have two exciting groups challenging each other with authentic recipes. Before coming to this month’s recipe, I also want to share with you about the award that I received for the last month SNC Challenge – Ghevar. Really excited to have won the “Well Presented Recipe”

Kachori is a spicy snack and this version of Green Peas Kachori is from West Bengal and is also called as “Koraishutir Kochuri“. This kachori is so delicious with a spicy filling and can be eaten as is or with curd. I served it with Dum Aloo (recipe coming soon). The original recipe had all purpose flour, I have made it with whole wheat flour. This recipe will make 6 kachoris. Stuffing can be a personal choice, make sure that the filling is not too wet or too oily.

Method
Mix all the ingredients for the dough and make to a smooth and elastic dough. Knead for a few minutes and keep it covered for 10 minutes. Do not rest the dough for long as it will make the kachoris soggy.
Grind together green peas and green chili to a paste. Add a table spoon of water if needed. Make sure that all are grinded

Heat ghee in a pan and add asafetida, ginger and after 10 seconds, add the grinded peas and sauté for a few minutes
Add salt, sugar, roasted cumin powder and cook until the mixture is very dry
Remove from heat and set aside to cool
Once cooled, divide into 6 balls

Divide the dough into 6 balls also. Now roll the ball into a small disc with very thin edges and thicker center
Keep the peas ball in between and cover it from the sides and set aside and do all the remaining
Heat oil to fry
Dip the balls in dry flour and roll it to a 5 inch to 6 inch circle. Do not put too much pressure as the stuffing may come out. Be gentle with it and it is easier to start with hand and finish with the rolling pin

Deep fry the kachoris in hot oil until golden on both sides
Remove to a paper towel to remove excess oil
Spicy green kachori is ready to relished!!!
