    Other recipe ingredient for making raj kachori:

    Instructions

    • Soak both channa and green moong overnight and pressure cook separately for 3 whistles. You can cook potato along with this too.
    • In a mixing bowl, mix the flour with semolina, corn flour, salt, oil well and make a tight dough by sprinkling water little by little. Let it set for minimum 1 hr so that it will be easy to roll.
    • After an hour knead well to a smooth dough and divide into equal size balls say 6- depending on how big you want the kachori.
    • Roll into a round circles. Heat oil in a kadai and let it be hot. Drop the puri one by one , it should puff up as shown in the picture. So make sure the oil is hot enough.
    • After it puffs up, lower the flame to maximum low and cook both side to get a golden brown crispy puri. Make all the ingredients ready including the chutneys.
    • At the time of serving, you can break the puri in the middle and fill it with mashed potaotes, channa, moong and a crushed papdi. Add both the chutneys.
    • Beat curd smoothly with little salt and sugar. Top the kachori with generous curd, both chutneys again and sprinkle sev over and garnish with more channa and moong and coriander leaves.
    • You can also sprinkle the chaat masala and red chilli powders as needed.

    Notes

    • The puri should be crisp for this and make sure you fry in low flame to make it crisp.
    • I like mine on sweeter side, so add lots of sweet chutney and add sugar in curd. So adjust the ingredients according to suit your taste.
    • You can use ready made store bought sev and chutneys available in the stores for easy job or pre plan and make the before day and keep.
    • You can also top pomegranate in this. Amchur powder can be sprinkled.
