How to make Kayi Puri- Coconut and jaggery stuffed puris

  1. For the outer covering:
  2. Mix the all purpose flour, semolina, salt, and melted butter in a large bowl and mix well. Add water gradually to make a stiff dough. Cover and set aside for 20 to 30min
  3. For the filling:
  4. Heat ghee in a thick bottomed pan. Add the freshly grated coconut and jaggery and mix well. Allow the mixture to cook on low heat for 3-4 min, mixing from time to time.
  5. Add the toasted poppy seeds and continue mixing till the moisture is evaporated and the mixture comes together in a lump.
  6. Add the cardamom powder and nutmeg powder. Mix well and take off the heat. Set aside to cool completely.
  7. To proceed:
  8. Divide the dough into 16 equal portions and set aside.
  9. Roll out each portion into 2-1/2" disc and place a table spoon of filling in the centre.
  10. Gather the edges to wrap the filling and seal it. Flatten it slightly with your palms and Roll the kachori again into a disc of 4-5" diameter.
  11. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough and filling.
  12. Heat oil in a large wok. Add the prepared kachoris 2-3 at a time and fry them on low heat till they turn golden brown in color.
  13. Take off the heat and drain them on absorbent paper. Repeat the process of frying to make the rest of the kachoris.
  14. Garnish with chopped pistachios and serve immediately.

My Tip:

Do allow the dough to dry out. This can cause the kachoris to tear which will let the oil seep into the kachoris while frying. To avoid this, keep the dough covered with a wet cloth at all times. Make sure the filling is lump free as it will cause the disc to tear. Do not fry kachoris on high heat. Reduce the heat once the oil is hot enough. This will yield crispy Kachoris
