You will need;-(pastry)

  • Water to knead dough......Mix all the ingredients and make a semi stiff dough.  Leave a side to rest for half an hour. 
Defrost pigeon peas and green peas.  Now Grind coarsley in a grinder.  In a haevy bottom pan heat oil and add mustard seeds and asafoetida.  After spultter add peas and cook for 6-7 minutes on a very low heat.  Now add all the masala and seasonings.  let it cook further about 5-6 minutes.  Switch of the heat and let it cool.Now divide the dough into small portions, and roll into a small circle. put a large spoonful of the filling into the center, then fold the dough over the filling to form a ball and seal the edges with a peak at the top. You can grease your palms a little and roll the ball between them to form an even ball if that's easier. Repeat for all the kachoris.   Now heat oil in a wok and deep fry 3-4 kachoris at a time over medium-to high heat till they are golden brown in color. Serve hot with Green Chutney or Tamarind chutney. I served with both..Enjoy as much as my family did!!
