Aloo Kachori with Aloo Sabji



This is my good friend Surabhi's recipe. She is from Mathura. This dish is Raksha Bandhan Festive Dish in Mathura. So I just want to share this recipe with all of you and I am going to send this recipe for Preeti's Rakhi – Thread of Love event .



Aloo Kachori (Deep Fried Potato Puffs)


Ingredients:

For Stuffing:
  • Boiled Potatoes: 2
  • Finely Chopped Green Chillies: 3-4
  • Ginger Garlic Paste: 1 tsp
  • Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves: 1 tbsp
  • Lemon Jucice: 1 tsp
  • Salt to Taste

For Cover:

  • Wheat Flour: 2 Cups
  • Water
  • Salt to Taste
  • Oil for Deep Frying and for Cover


Procedure:

  1. Mix salt and small amount of oil in a wheat flour very well. Then add some water and knead the dough. Dough should be just like chapati dough. Cover this dough and keep aside for a while.
  2. Then grate boiled potatoes. Add all other ingredients of stuffing in potatoes. Mix this stuffing mixture very well.
  3. Make small ball of dough. Apply some oil on both palms & flatten the ball to form a 2 inch disc. Take small portion of stuffing and wrap that stuffing in each disc and roll into a small ball. Roll this ball to form a 3-4 inch round kachori.
  4. Heat the oil in kadhai. Now lift the rolled kachori and carefully slip it into the hot oil.
    Immediately start flickering hot oil over the top of it with a spatula so that it will swell up. Flip the kachori and cook both sides till it become golden brown.
  5. Serve this hot kachori with any chutney or Aloo Sabji.
