Muttar Ki Kachori~~IC Challenge

Kachoris, the word itself makes me drool, i have already tried few varieties of kachoris. For this month's Indian Cooking Challenge, Srivalli aked us to choose any of the recipe from our earlier challenges. Since most of our challenges were very much related to Indian festivals and many of us didnt had a chance to make some challenges till now, its quite a fabulous opportunity to give a try to the challenges we havent finished yet.

So i choosed to make some muttar ki kachori she shared during our 2010th January challenge, actually i cooked Pyaz ki Kachori for that challenge eventhough i wanted to make some muttar ki kachori since a long. Obviously i used this opportunity to cook some yummy muttar ki kachori two days back for our snacks. They came out extremely yummy,flaky and super crispy, we simply enjoyed these crispy beauties for our snacks with a cup of coffee while its raining outside.



For Dough:
2cups All purpose flour
1/4cup Ghee
Salt

Mix the flour and salt, gradually add the ghee and turn the the flour as bread crumbs like texture, slowly add the water and make a soft dough, knead well.

Cover and keep aside for atleast half an hour..

For GreenPeas Filling:
2cups Greenpeas
1tsp Grated ginger
1tsp Nigella seeds
2tsp Fennel seeds
2nos Bay leaves
1no Green chillies (chopped finely)
1tsp Chilly powder
1tsp Garam masala
2tbsp Chopped coriander
2tsbsp Oil
Salt

Coarsely grind the green peas,green chillies and ginger and keep aside.

Heat the oil in a pan,add the nigella seeds, fennel seeds, bay leaves and fry.

Add the greenpeas mixture and saute in low flame few minutes.

Now add  the chilli powder, garam masala and salt and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.Add the chopped coriander and mix well.

Remove the bay leaves and discard.

Allow the mixture to cool completely and divide into 12 equal portions and keep aside.


To make Kachoris:

Make a small ball from the dough...flatten the ball using your fingers having the center thick and sides little thin.

Place about 2 tsps of the greenpeas filling in the center of the rolled dough.

Cover the filling with the dough by slowly stretching it over the filling. Seal the ends and remove excess dough.

Repeat with all the balls and keep aside for 5 -7 mins.

Then using your palm, flatten the balls by lightly pressing it,keep aside covered.

Repeat with the remaining dough,meanwhile heat some oil for deep frying. The oil should not become smoking hot.

Fry the kachoris in small batches gently into the oil. It should rise up slowly.Cook for about 6 to 10 minutes till the side down gets a golden brown color.

Turn and cook the other side for another 6 minutes or till its golden brown in color.

Remove when done, cool and store in airtight container.

Enjoy with coriander or tamarind chutney.
