Here is how to make this Flaky & crispy Kachori’s is just 8 easy steps :)

  • 1 cup maida (all-purpose flour)
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • enough cold water to knead the maida
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep frying
8 Easy Steps

  1. Mix one cup of white flour (all purpose or plain flour), 1 tablespoon of rice flour, 2 tablespoons of oil and salt. Make a dough. Knead the dough well, using cold water.
  2. Divide the dough into small balls. Keep them covered with moist cloth for 20 – 25 minutes.
  3. While the dough is resting, soak ¼ cup of mung bean and ¼ cup of black gram for 3 hours. Drain the water and allow it to dry.
  4. Add the oil to a frying pan. Add crushed cumin seeds and asafoetida. Wait until it turns brown. Now add the ginger and green chilli paste, gram flour and spice powders of your choice. Sauté them for a minute or two.
  5. At this stage, the fillings for the kachori are ready. Place the fillings on a plate.
  6. Take out the balls (of flour). Roll the balls using a rolling pin and roll into a thick poori. Add the kachori fillings in the center. Enclose the kachori fillings with the outer part of the poori to make a pocket. Make the same with the other balls.
  7. Add oil to the frying pan and heat on medium flame for frying the kachoris.Add the kachoris to the oil and fry them until they're properly cooked and their colour turns to golden–brown.
  8. Transfer the Khasta Kachori onto a plate. They're now ready to serve!
