Today I have tried onion kachori. It’s a Rajasthani snack which is mouthwatering and tangy in taste. Let’s proceed to the recipe.
PREPARATION TIME: 45 MINUTES
Maida (white flour): 1 cup
Rava (semolina): 1 tablespoon
Salt: 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee (clarified butter): 2 tablespoons
Warm water: for kneading
Oil: for frying
Oil: 2 tablespoons
Cumin seeds: 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander seeds: 1/2 teaspoon
Saunf (fennel seeds): 1/2 teaspoon
Asafoetida: 1 pinch
Green chilies: 2 (finely chopped)
Ginger paste: 1/2 teaspoon
Onion: 2 medium (roughly chopped)
Red chili powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Aamchur (dry mango powder): 1/2 teaspoon
Sugar: 1/4 teaspoon
Besan (gram flour): 1/4 cup
Salt: according to the taste
Chopped coriander leaves: 1 tablespoon
- In a large bowl, take maida, rava, salt and ghee. Mix them well and knead a dough with the help of warm water. Cover the dough and keep aside for 30 minutes.
- Put a pan on medium flame and heat oil.
- Add cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, asafoetida, and let them splutter.
- Add chopped green chilies, ginger paste, and saute them for 30-40 seconds on simmer flame.
- Add chopped onions and saute them till they turn translucent.
- Now add red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, aamchur, sugar, salt, and mix them well. Saute them till they turn aromatic.
- Now add besan and roast for 4-5 minutes on medium flame.
- Add chopped coriander leaves and mix. Stuffing is ready, now keep aside to cool completely.
- After some time, take a ball sized amount from the dough and flatten it.
- Now place 1 tablespoon onion stuffing in the center. Get all the edges and make a bundle. Close the top and seal it. With the help of your palms press and flatten. Repeat this process and make all the kachoris.
- In parallel, put a pan on medium flame and heat oil.
- When the oil is medium hot, put the prepared kachoris in oil carefully and fry them from both the sides on medium flame till they turn golden brown.
- Transfer them to a plate and serve with chutneys. (Chutney recipe: https://yellowbowlrecipes.wordpress.com/2018/12/31/3-types-of-sauces/ )
