Ingredients for Stuffing:

Ingredients Quantity
Cumin seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Asafetida 1/4 teaspoon
Onion 3
Green Chilly 1
Coriander leaves 2 tablespoon
Crushed Garlic 1/2 teaspoon
Grated ginger 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder 1/4 teaspoon
Oil 1 tablespoon

Ingredients for Kachori:

All purpose flour/ Maida 1.5 cup
Salt 1/4 teaspoon
Oil 2 tablespoon to add in the flour
Water to knead the dough
Vegetable oil for deep frying the kachoris


1. Heat the non-stick pan with oil and temper with cumin seeds. When it starts crackling add onion. Fry it till onions are translucent.

2. Add in chopped green chilly, coriander leaves, asafetida, ginger, garlic, salt and red chilly powder.

3. Mix it well and cook the spices for another 4-5 minutes till onions are light golden in the color. Switch off the flame and keep it aside.

4. Combine flour, salt and oil into another bowl and mix it well . Now add water and knead the flour to make the tight dough. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions.

5. Take one portion of the dough and flatten it with your palms as shown below in the image. Put 2 teaspoon stuffing in the center of the dough.

6. Close the edges by applying some water so that the filling doesn’t come out in the oil when you deep fry the kachoris. Press the dough after the filling to give them the final shape of Kachoris. Do the same with the rest of the dough.

7. Heat the wok with oil and deep fry the kachoris on very low flame till light golden in the color and crispy. I deep fried it in two batches. Delicious kachori is ready to serve, serve hot with your favourite chutney, sauce or you can simply have with a cup of tea.

8. Enjoy!!
