Easy Matar Kachori Recipe


  1. Bring together all the dry ingredients for the dough and then add ghee. 

  2. Rub the batter between your palms for 5-7 minutes. Then using warm water, knead it into a tight dough. Cover with wet muslin and keep aside for 30 minutes.

  3. Mix all the ingredients for the stuffing and keep aside. Add some water if you’d like it to be on the moist side.

  4. Roll out small discs of the dough of desired size, spoon in the stuffing and seal into balls.

  5. Deep fry it and enjoy it hot with some green or tamarind chutney. 


These freeze very well after half frying and bringing to room temperature. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before ⁣frying.
