A delicacy from the kitchens of Bengal, this kochuri is made using a dough of two flours with a green peas filling.
The flavours of aniseeds, kalonji and pepper mingle together in the stuffing to create a truly zesty bite! This is a filling snack, with the goodness of whole wheat and jowar flours, not to forget the nutrition boost from green peas.
As we have baked the Matarsutir Kochuri rather than deep-frying, the calorie-count is also absolutely under control.
