Green Peas Kachori with Spicy Dum Aloo - Bengali style


Today I am here with Green Peas Kachori served with spicy dum aloo. I tried this recipe from fellow blogger Sanoli's space. This is a bengali style dish also known as  Koraishutir Kochuri aur Aloor Dam. Kachori is stuffed with spicy green peas filling and is deep fried and served with spicy baby potatoes. It tasted great and my daughter loved it so much.


Green Peas Kachori/ Koraishutir Kochiri

What are the ingredients needed?

For Kachoris
All purpose flour, 2 cup
Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
Oil, 1 tablespoon (to knead the dough) + more for frying

For the stuffing
Green peas, 2 cup
Green chillies, 2 nos
Grated ginger, 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder, 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala powder, 1/2 teaspoon
Asafoetida, a pinch
Fennel seeds, 1/2 teaspoon
Oil, 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste


How it is made?
  1. In a bowl combine all purpose flour, oil,salt and add water little by little and keep kneading till you form a smooth dough. Keep it covered and let it rest for at least half an hour.
  2. To prepare the green peas filling- coarsely grind the green peas, ginger and green chillies. Then heat oil in a skillet, add fennel seeds and then asafoetida and fry for a minute, then add the ground peas mixture. Mix well. Then add cumin powder, garam masala powder and salt to taste and mix well. Keep stirring the mixture in medium low heat until all the extra water evaporates and mixture becomes dry. Then turn off the heat and roll the mixture into small balls and set it aside. It yields 12- 14 balls depending on the size you roll.
  3. Now take the resting dough and roll it into small balls.
  4. Then roll it into small disc, place the prepared peas balls in the centre and cover it such that it is completely covered. 
  5. Then roll it again gently till the you get the required kachori shape. 
  6. Heat oil and deep fry the kachori till they are golden brown on both sides. The kachoris will puff like pooris. 
  7. Remove from oil, drain the excess oil in a paper towel and serve it warm with Dum Aloo or any other curry of your choice.
