Peas Kachori -1
I wanted to make peas paratha, but ended up making peas kachori as i have a sudden craving  for kachori. Sometimes it happens for all of us to have craving for deep fried snack. Hope you all agree !. I have already posted a recipe for Kachori HEREmoth dal stuffing. 
 I almost followed the same recipe but the inside stuffing is bit different. As green peas is in season, i thought i will make the stuffing with green peas. Enjoy this popular street food .

  • Keep the oil ready for deep frying. The oil shouldn't be too hot. else it will be get cooked inside.
  • If it is less hot it will drink oil and won't turn crispy.
  • To check it, put a pinch of plain dough into the oil and if it immediately comes up it is the right temperature.
