Poha Kachori

You will need:- ( Pastry )

  • 1/2 cup Self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup Chappati flour
  • Salt to taste
  • 3-4 tbsp oil
  •  Water to kneed dough
  • You will need :- ( stuffing )
    • 1 cup poha ( rice flakes )
    • 2 tbsp roasted gram flour-besan ( I used gujarati style bharwa masala )
    • 2 tbsp ginger and green chilli paste
    • Salt to taste
    • 1 tbsp mustard seeds
    • pinch asafoetida
    • 1 tsp seasame seeds
    • 1 tbsp Sugar
    • 1 tbsp dry coconut powder
    • Dry mango powder or lemon juice(according to your taste)
    • 1 tsp Garam masala
    • 1 tsp red chilli powder
    • 2 tsp cumin and coriander seeds powder
    • 1 tsp fennel seeds(crushed)
    • 1 tbsp fresh chopped coriander
    • 2 tbsp oil
    • More oil to fry

    Mix all the ingredients and make a semi stiff dough. Leave aside to rest for about an hour.
    Clean, wash and soak the poha at least half an hour.
    In a heavy bottom pan heat oil and add mustard seeds and asafoetida.
    After splutter add poha and gram flour and cook for 2-3 minutes on very low heat.
    Now add all the masala and seasonings. let it cook further about 3-4 minutes.
    Switch off 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 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!! you can check out  my Garlic Kachori here.
