Karaishutir kochuri — Peas kachuri

This peas kachori has become staple food with Bengalis during the winter months —

This is basically luchi stuffed with mashed peas and while making these became somewhat nostaligic — went back to our childhood days — when with the first whift of cold air in Kolkata —this was the first menu of our weekend days that used to be prepared in our kitchen —

I have been making these puris for several winters now , and since I have started writing blogs— thought of sharing this recipe with you all friends — hope you will like it too — πŸ™‚

This has taken 2nd place in Bengali cuisine immediately after luchi torkari

Main Ingredients

For puri

  • 500 gm of all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp of oil
  • 1 tsp of vegetable oil

For stuffing

  • 500 gm of green peas
  • 2 green chilli
  • 1 tsp of ginger paste
  • 4 tsp of cumin and dry red chilli powder
  • 4 tsp of fennel seed powder
  • 2 tbsp of mustard oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp of sugar

Method: For puri Put all the ingredients together in a medium bowl and knead it into a soft dough and keep it aside for 1 hour. For stuffing : Wash the peas and put it in a blender together with 2 green chilli and ginger paste.

Make it into a smooth paste.

Heat mustard oil in a non-stop pan , add some kalonji , when it starts spluttering add in the pea paste .

Start cooking on slow flame till the raw flavour of peas disappears completely Add in the dry roasted Masala, adjust the seasoning .

Put off the flame when the paste starts to leave the side of the pan

Roll out some puris from the prepared dough —

Make small balls out of the filling and place it in the centre of the puris — seal the edges –roll it out again into small puris —

Heat required quantity of vegetable oil and fry the puris till both sides puff up —

Serve it with alur dum — your weekend dinner is set —- πŸ™‚
