Flour 250 Gram
Ghee/Oil 75 Gram (5 Tablespoons)
Salt To Taste
For filling
Urad dal 250 Gram
Chili powder 2 Teaspoon
Aniseed powder 1 Teaspoon
Garam masala 2 Teaspoon
Water 1
Soda bicarbonate 1 Pinch
Cumin coriander powder 2 Teaspoon
Asafoetida 1 Pinch
Frying oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Frying)


Sift together salt, Soda-bicarb and flour.

Rub in fat.

Add enough water to make a soft dough (the dough should be stiffer than that for chapati).

Divide dough into 15 to 20 portions.

Make balls.

Cover with a damp cloth and set aside.

Soak dal in water for four to six hours.

Drain well.

Grind to a fine paste (without adding water).

Add rest of the ingredients for filling.

Flatten each ball or roll out into a round, put one tablespoon of the dal mixture in the centre, dampen the edges of the round and close it as for kachori.

Fill all balls of dough with the filling.

Press the filled rounds between palms of hands to flatten slightly.

Fry in deep hot fat on a very slow fire till light brown and crisp.

If shallow frying is desired, roll out kachori slightly and fry on hot tawa using as much ghee or oil as desired.
