How to make Koraisutir kochuri (green pea stuffed kachouri)

  1. To make the green pea stuffing:
  2. In a flat pan dry roast cumin seeds, dry red chilies, cinnamon, green cardamom. Remove from heat when the spices give out a nice aroma. cool down and grind to powder. Keep aside.
  3. If using fresh green peas, then shell the peas, wash them well and drain the water. If using frozen peas, then thaw and wash them and drain water.
  4. Make a smooth paste of the peas, ginger and green chilies. Do not use too much water while making the paste.
  5. Take oil (1 tablespoon) in a non stick pan. When the oil is hot add the green pea paste and cook it in medium flame. Keep stirring continuously.
  6. Gradually it will change color as paste dries up. When the paste is almost done add the freshly made ground masala and salt. Mix well.
  7. When the paste does not stick to the pan, it is done. Let it cool down. The stuffing will dry up as it cools down. Do not dry it too much, you should be able to make round balls with the stuffing without it sticking to your fingers.
  8. To make the dough:
  9. Take the flour in a bowl. Add oil, sugar, salt and mix well. Gradually add water and knead the dough. Let the dough rest for 15 mins.
  10. Divide the dough into equal size round balls. Since you are going to stuff it, make a little larger rounds than puri. I made puris of 3cm diameter.
  11. Flatten the dough with your fingers and take a little stuffing and place the stuffing at the center of the dough. Fold the dough from all the sides and close the dough.
  12. To deep fry the kochuri:
  13. Roll the stuffed dough with a rolling pin into flat circles (about 5 inches in diameter). Take care so the stuffing does not come out. Brush the flat surface with a little oil if needed.
  14. Heat enough oil in a pan to deep fry the kochuri.
  15. When the oil is hot put a rolled kochuri in the hot oil. It will puff like a round ball. Cook for 1 min, turn and cook for another 1 min.
  16. Take out from oil, serve with alur dum or any other vegetable curry.

My Tip:

The green pea paste should be silky smooth. The more water one adds while making the paste, it will take more time to dry up the paste. Do not over stuff the dough, or it may burst while rolling. Apply even pressure while rolling the dough.
