Take all the ingredients for the covering in a bowl,pour cold water & knead it to a soft dough.Cover & rest it for 10 minutes.
Take a bowl mix all the filling ingredients except water,pour the oil & mix it well.
Heat a pan & add the filling masala & in low flame roast it till dal changes its colour & gives a nice aroma.This step is very important otherwise your filling will have a raw smell.
Cool & mix water to the masala & keep the filling ready.
Divide the dough into 12 small balls.Shape the ball like a cup,place 1tsp of filling in the middle of the dough.Seal it well & flatten it with your palm,make sure the filling does not come out.
Heat oil in a pan & in low medium heat fry these kachories till light brown on all sides & crisp.Do not fry in high flame.
Remove it on a kitchen paper for excess oil to get absorbed.
Serve these kachoris with tamarind chutney.
a) Deep fry in medium low flame otherwise you will not get a crispy kachori.
b) Add spices according to your taste if anything needed extra for your taste buds.
c) Before frying check your kachories are well sealed otherwise the filling will come out while frying.

  1. I love khasta kachoris. I like the way you have served them. I never used to make them until I saw the recipe in a book. Since then we make them regularly.
