Aloo Kachori- Kachoris by definition are stuffed puris/pooris. While their texture may vary from state to state (Bengalis prefer softer kachoris, vs Rajasthanis who usually prefer more crispy kachoris), they are a most favored snack across Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Bengal.


Ingredients for Kachori Flour

  • Flour or wheat flour (Maida or atta) – 300 grams (3 teacups)
  • Semolina (Suji) – 100 grams (1 teacup)
  • Salt – to taste (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Oil – 2 tablespoon

For potato stuffing

  • Potato – 300 grams (5-6)
  • Oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Cumin seeds(Jeera) - ½ teaspoon
  • Coriander powder (Dhaniya) – 1 ½ teaspoon
  • Green chili – 2 (chopped finely)
  • Ginger (Adrak) – 1 ½ ” piece
  • Dry mango powder (Amchoor) – ½ teaspoon
  • Garam Masala – ¼ teaspoon
  • Salt – ½ teaspoon
  • Oil – for frying
Cooking Instructions
  1. Boil potatoes in a pressure cooker. We will make dough for kachoris by the time potatoes are boiling.
  2. Sift flour and semolina, add salt,  oil and mix well with hands.
  3. Knead a soft dough with lukewarm water (like the one for making chapattis). Cover and keep aside for half an hour.
  4. Peel boiled potatoes and break in small pieces. Heat oil in a small Kadai (wok). Add cumin seeds in oil. When cumin seeds crackle, add coriander powder, green chili, ginger, salt, and potato. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Make lemon sized balls from the dough. Place one ball on your palm, flatten with fingers. Gently press the center of the kachori with your thumb, add 1 to 1 ½ teaspoon of potato filling, and seal the ends in the shape of a Kachori. Press between palms. Roll gently with a rolling pin. Make all kachoris in this fashion.
  6. Heat oil in a Kadai for deep frying. Deep fry kachoris on medium flame. Turn while frying till they turn brown on both sides.
  7. Place kachoris on a napkin on a plate. Fry all kachoris. Serve hot kachoris with green and sweet chutney.
