How to make Besan Khasta Kachori

  1. For the Dough
  2. In a wide bowl, combine maida, salt, ghee and mix well. Prepare soft and smooth dough adding cold water gradually. Dough should not be too hard.
  3. Cover and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
  4. For the Masala
  5. Dry roast cloves, cinnamon stick, black peppercorns, saunf and coriander seeds for about a minute. Let them cool completely.
  6. Once cooled, grind them to a fine powder.
  7. For the Stuffing
  8. Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Add dry red chili, curry leaves and besan.
  9. Saute on a medium flame for 3-4 minutes.
  10. Now add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, chaat masala, salt and prepared masala.
  11. Mix well and saute for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from flame and allow it to cool.
  12. Once the mixture gets cooled completely, add powdered sugar and amchur to it. Mix well.
  13. Pass the mixture through a sieve/strainer so that no lumps remain and dry red chilli and curry leaves can also be separated from the mixture.
  14. Stuffing is now ready.
  15. Preparing Kachoris
  16. Knead the dough again using little ghee and divide into 6 equal sized balls.
  17. Take one dough ball and roll into a small round. Place 1-2 teaspoon prepared stuffing over it.
  18. Apply little water on the edges. Gather the edges and seal properly. Roll out into kachori of medium thickness. Repeat the same procedure to make remaining kachoris.
  19. Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan/kadai.
  20. Gently add kachoris in oil and fry on a low to medium flame till they get puffy and golden brown in color.
  21. Serve them with green chutney or imli chutney.

My Tip:

Fry 2-3 kachoris at a time. Do not overcrowd the oil. Make sure to fry kachoris on low to medium flame. It will take around 10 to 12 minutes to fry one batch.
