For those who are from north India just cannot live without Kachoris. Daal Kachori Aloo kachori matar kachori …list goes on and on….
I love these babies too. We came back from our native after the great Indian festival called diwali..so I had enough of all the types..but being the northy that I am..i was craving for some deep fried snack like kachori but with a different twist….
Here is my innovative take on kachori…Cheddar Cheese and Dhaniya Jeera Kachoris
For filling you need:
grated Cheddar Cheese – 1 cup
finely chopped green chili – as per taste
Chopped coriander – 2 tablespoons
Roasted Jeera Powder: 1.5 teaspoons
Salt – few pinches (optional)
None of the limited spices we are using should over power cheese. You can moderate all quantities according to your taste.
caraway seeds – 1 tsp
all purpose flour or Maida – 1.5 cup
Oil – 1.5 tablespoons
salt to taste.
Knead the dough like as one would for pooris not very soft. Keep it away for 15 mins.
Now make small balls similar to what one makes for pooris. make a hole in the middle and stuff the cheese filling. Close the ball properly. and roll out in small round shape with a light hand.
Heat oil in a wok for deep frying. Make sure the oil is not too hot otherwise kachoris will be chewy from inside and wont be crisp or cooked evenly
Cheese and tomato ketchup always work..so serve with tomato sauce. Enjoy piping hot.
