About Pyaaz ki Kachori Recipe

I became a huge fan of these Pyaaz ki Kachori, when I visited Jaipur almost a decade ago and stopped by Rawat’s. These Kachoris were crisp on the outside and perfectly moist within with such a burst of flavour with every mouthful! Can’t remember how many I must’ve eaten back then!!

How to make Pyaaz ki Kachori

  1. Method : Take the flour in a large mixing bowl, add warm ghee and rub the flour with your fingertips for 7-8 minutes, season with salt and carom seeds.
  2. Add adequate water to make a medium stiff dough. Cover it with a damp cloth. Set the dough aside.
  3. Heat a pan and dry roast coriander seeds, fennel seeds, peppercorns, cumin seeds, whole dry red chillies for 5-6 minutes. Turn off the heat and let them cool for a few minutes. Grind these coarsely in a blender. Set aside.
  4. Heat oil in the same pan, add chopped onions, a pinch of sugar and saute till they turn a bit brown. Next add the fresh spice powder, turmeric powder and give them a mix.
  5. Also add the ginger, garlic, green chilli pastes and saute for 3-4 minutes. Let the oil separate from the spices. It will take about 4-5 minutes. Season with salt, add the garam masala. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Add amchur powder and chopped coriander leaves. Stir and turn off the heat and set it aside.
  7. Assembling: Knead the dough once again and make small balls of equal size. Flatten each out with your fingers and your palm or rolling pin. The diameter can about 3 inch or less, thickness should be a little more than that of a puri.
  8. Then add 1 tbsp or so of the filling and close the ball well so that the filling does not come out while frying.
  9. Now, heat oil in a large, heavy bottomed wok. Once it is hot enough, drop 2-3 kachoris in the oil and fry well from both sides until they turn a rich golden colour. Drain well on a tissue paper/ absorbent kitchen paper.
  10. Serve with any chutney of your choice.
