With the first rain of the season relished this unique snack instead of usual pakoda's!! Crispy, spicy, sweet, tangy all in one mini kachori's enjoyed with hot cup of tea.

Ingredients: (Makes approx. 10 Mini Kachori's)

  • Soak moong dal (mung bean) for 6-7 hours. After soaking, blend moong dal into paste by adding very little amount of water. 
  • Soak rawa (semolina) in water for 10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. When cumin seeds begins to sizzle add roasted fennel powder, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, sugar and mix well.
  • Now in this masala add moong dal paste and mix it well. Add salt to taste & chaat masala. Add 1/4th cup of water to moong dal mixture and let it cook on slow flame for 7-10 minutes till the moong dal is cooked well and its raw flavour fades away. 
  • Once cooked, cool the moong dal mixture.
For outer cover: 
  • In a bowl take plain flour. Add 2 tbsp hot ghee (clarified butter), salt and soaked rawa (semolina). Add little water and knead a stiff dough. Let the dough rest for 20 minutes.
Kachori Procedure: 
  • Now take a small portion of the dough and roll into 3  to 4 inches diameter disc.  
  • Take a spoonful of moong dal mixture and place this stuffing in the middle of this disc and bringing the edges together in the center, seal it completely.
  • Using your palm pat the kachori into small round disc or you can roll them using rolling board & pin. Be gentle while rolling as the moongdal mixture should not come out.
  • Now deep fry these kachoris in hot oil till golden brown on a medium flame.
  • Moong Dal Kachori - Mung Bean Stuffed Fritters are ready.
  • Serve with dates & tamarind chutney or wet garlic chutney or ketchup or as it is!!
