RAJ KACHORI


Raj kachori is a Shahi Snack from Rajasthan. A crispy puffed puri is made and filled with various stuffings like potato, chana, moong , papdi, sweet chutney mint chutney, onion, curd and topped with fine sev. What could be a better choice than this for our first potluck party..The concept of potluck party where we bring various dishes, serve little of each into our plates and relish them together is similar isn't it..

Ingredients:
For the kachori:
Maida / flour .... 1/4 cup
Fine semolina .. 1/4 cup
Salt ........... to taste
Oil / ghee .. 2-3 tbsps.


1.Mix the flour,semolina, salt and ghee well. Knead into a soft dough adding a little water as needed and set aside.
2. Make 2 small puris. Spread oil one a puri, sprinkle little flour and place the other puri on top of it. Now together you roll them into a bigger puri.( the size that you prefer)
3. Deep fry on low flame to get a crispy texture.



For the filling:
Potato .... 1 boiled and cut into pieces
Chana .... soaked overnight and boiled with salt
Moong ..... Soaked overnight and boiled with salt.
Papdi ...... fried out of the same dough (small pieces)
Onion..... finely chopped
Sweet chutney .... See recipe  HERE
Mint chutney ...... See recipe  HERE
Yogurt ............ whipped
Chat masala / bhuna jeera crushed
Salt .......... to taste
Red chilli powder
Sev ......... since I don't get sev here I have replaced it with fried crushed papad

To assemble the Kachori:



Make a hole on the top. Fill all the ingredients one by one into it.
Pour the whipped yogurt and chutneys on top. Sprinkle chat masala or bhuna jeera, chilli powder according to your liking. Finally top it with fine sev.




 Serve immediately.
