A perfect kachori is one that is puffed up and flaky outside but hollow inside as the filling sticks to the crust. Here is how to make such an ideal kachori, right in your own kitchen. With a flavourful moong dal mixture as filling, this kachori is deep-fried patiently on a slow flame to achieve that deliciously crisp crust and hollow, well-cooked interior. The Moong Dal Kachori can be kept fresh and stored in an air-tight containers for 2 to 3 days. Just before serving, warm up the kachoris in an oven for about 7 to 10 minutes, fill them with curds and chutneys and serve!

Method
For the dough

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a semi-soft dough using enough water.
  2. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for 15 minutes.

For the moong dal filling

  1. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the cumin seeds and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  2. Add the moong dal and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  3. Add the ginger-green chilli paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and ¼ cup of water and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  4. Switch off the flame, add the besan, garam masala and dried mango powder and mix well.
  5. Divide the filling into 12 equal portions and keep aside to cool.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and keep aside.
  2. Roll out each portion of the dough into a 63 mm. (2½ ") diameter circle.
  3. Place one portion of the moong dal filling in the center.
  4. Bring together all the sides, seal it tightly and remove any excess dough.
  5. Roll the filled portion again into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle, while ensuring that the filling does not spill out.
  6. Repeat steps 2 to 5 to make 11 more kachoris.

thanks for your reply tarlaji . As the recipe mentions to fry kachori on medium flame for 4 minutes and then on slow flame for 5-6 minutes. So, the medium flame is = 180 C ? and if so , how much is the slow flame?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Rahul, try on 180 first and then lower it to 160

Hi Tarlaji, I mean oil deep fryer. (like this one http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTY2WDg0OQ==/z/3-4AAOSwDk5T1iSc/$_32.JPG?set_id=880000500F ) It is frying in oil in similar way but the temprature is controlled and maintained. in the oil deep fryer , I could select a particular temprature between 150-200C and the same temprature is maintained by the deep fryer itself.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Rahul, The temperature will be approx 180 C
