Add a pinch of asafoetida , ½ tsp cumin seeds, ¼ tsp turmeric powder , 2 to 3 finely chopped green chilies, 1 tsp ginger paste, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp fennel seeds powder and roast the spices well. Make sure you reduce the flame so the spices don’t burn.

  7. Stuffing is ready and 20 minutes are over, the dough is set up until now. Smoothen the dough a bit. Now that the dough is smooth, break the dough into two parts and make small round dough balls out of it. Roll and then flatten the dough balls.
  8. Now let’s roll out the dough balls for making the kachoris, Take a dough ball, dust it will refined flour and roll it thin and round. Put the refined flour in a big plate to dust the pooris. When it starts to stick to the rolling pin, dust it with the refined flour. Roll it out very thin like a chapati. After that Spread ghee and refined flour mixture and cover the sheet and spread it over the edges. Spread a thin layer like this over the sheet with hands.
  9. Now fold the sheet in three giving it three equal layers. Fold the sheet into square shape. Similarly prepare the rest of the sheets as well to get a layered kachori . After preparing the square shaped sheets , keep the sheets aside for 15 to 20 minutes and then prepare the kachoris.
  10. Start rolling out the sheets. Place one square shaped sheet on the rolling board and roll out in square shape keeping it little thick. Place 2 to 3 tsp stuffing over it.

Lift the 2 opposite corners and join it likewise lift the other corner. Join all the edges at the centre and press it. Kachori is now stuffed and ready. While rolling out the sheet make sure you don’t keep it too thin in the center. Keep it thin on the corners and thick in the center.
  11. Meanwhile heat enough oil in a wok on low flame. Check if the oil is hot sufficiently. We need slightly heated oil for frying the kachoris and fry them on the low flame. When Oil is sufficiently heated. Keep the flame low and gently slide the kachoris in oil.Fry the kachoris on low flame until they turn golden brown in color from both the sides.Flip the sides when the kachoris start floating on the surface.
  12. Since the kachoris turn golden brown from all sides, now drain it out. Hold the ladle on the side of the wok so that extra oil drains back in to the oil.Place the fried kachori on a plate. Similarly fry rest of the kachoris as well. Turn off the flame once done with frying the kachoris.
