Ingredients :


For the dough :


  1. All purpose flour / Maida - 2 cup
  2. Oil / ghee - 2 tbsp 
  3. Salt  - to taste
  4. Warm water - as required
[recipe source for stuffing : Authentic Food Delights ]

For the stuffing :


  1. Boiled sweet corn - 1 1/2 cup
  2. Green chillies - 2-3 finely chopped
  3. Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
  4. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  5. Peppercorns -5-6
  6. Carom seeds - 1 tsp
  7. Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
  8. Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup finely chopped
  9. Chaat masala powder - 1 tsp
  10. Salt  - to taste 
  11. Oil -  to deep fry

Method :

  Dough :

  1. Sieve the flour and salt together.
  2. Add oil and mix with your fingers until well incorporated.
  3. Now slowly add warm water and knead into a soft dough.
  4. Cover and keep aside for about 20-25 minutes.

Stuffing :

  1. Dry roast cumin seeds and peppercorns, grind them into a coarse powder. Keep aside.
  2. Coarsely grind the boiled corn and  keep aside.
  3. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan, add carom seeds and fennel seeds. When they change color add ginger-garlic paste, chopped green chillies and fry for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add coriander leaves, ground cumin and peppercorns, salt, chaat masala powder and mix well.
  5. Now stir in the  the corn paste, mix well. 
  6. Cook for a few minutes and then keep aside to cool.

  Making kachoris :


  1. Divide the dough into equal portions and shape into balls.
  2. Roll each ball with the rolling pin into a slightly thick puri and place a spoonful of the stuffing in the center. Enclose the filling by gathering the outer edge of the puri to form a pocket. Pinch off extra dough and shape into a flat ball by gently pressing your thumb in the center. Then roll them into small flattened pooris.
  3. Repeat the same for the rest of the dough.
  4. Deep fry the kachoris on a medium-low flame till golden brown and crisp.
  5. Remove on a kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
  6. Serve hot with green chutney or ketchup.





                   Enjoy and Good luck :)
