Step 2: Now, roast the gram flour till it becomes light pink in color.
Step 3: Take another bowl and add palm sugar, water, and tamarind.
Step 4: In a pan, heat two tablespoon oil and add asafoetida and tamarind mixture to it and cook it for 2-3 minutes. Then add red chili powder, garam masala, salt, sesame seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, cashew nuts, coriander-cumin powder, and cinnamon powder to it and mix them well.
Step 5: Now, add gram flour and mix them too. Then add raisins, cashew nuts and sauté the mixture until it becomes dry.
Step 6: Turn off the heat and remove the pan from the heat. The stuffing is ready.
Step 7: Once the filling is cool make small sized balls from it.
Step 8: In a deep frying pan, heat the oil on the MEDIUM flame. Divide the all-purpose flour into the same equal part.
Step 9: Make small rolls from the dough and make a thick puri from it.
Step 10: Now, take a stuffing ball and place it into the middle of the rolled puri and wrap the filling with puri.
Step 11: Seal the puri edges with the help of slight water or oil and again shape it into a ball.
Step 12: Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough and stuffing mixture.
Step 13: Deep fry these kachori balls in the MEDIUM-LOW flame until it turns golden brown.
Step 14: Once it’s cool, store them in an airtight container and place it in the dry place.
- Instead of using roasted gram flour, you can also use sev, ganthiya.
- Using cold water to knead the dough makes the Kachori crispy. You can also use warm water.
- Kachori’s outer layer is thick so make the puri thick, so the stuffing keeps inside it.
- Instead of deep-frying, you can also bake the kachori into the microwave. Just grease the kachori balls with the oil and place it into the preheated microwave for 20-30 minutes at 180 c.
- While deep frying the kachori, ensure that the oil is not over-heated. Oil should be medium heated, so once you drop the kachori balls, it quickly comes up.
