Moong Dal Kachori | How to make Khasta Moong Dal Kachori

Moong Daal Kachori

Khasta Moong Dal Kachori is a sinful deep fried ball from the North Indian Cuisine, filled with ground moong dal with spices and deep fried in a flaky outer layer.

When I planned for Rajasthani Thali, I had asked Vaishali for a starter or snack and she suggested I make this. While I already have a Khasta Kachori with Moong Dal, I felt this had a different filling so went ahead and made it. As with all thali preparation, the recipes get checked out in a glimpse and during the making, I realized that I need to quickly make this if it needs to take its place in the Thali.

So I went ahead and made a handful of these small treats before completing the other dishes. It is quite heavy to be part of a fullfledged Meal and hence I made a mini version of these. I also made only a portion of the original recipe as I felt I will be the only person eating this deep fried snack.

Well, I feasted on these along with Konda. We are starting the BM#88, week 2 and I will be sharing some bite sized foods.

Wash and soak the moong daal for about 2 hours.
Grind it coarsely.
Add coarsely ground fennel, coriander seeds, salt and hing along with red chilli powder, garam masala and amchur powder. Mix well.
Heat a nonstick pan with oil and roast this paste till it dries up.
Let it cool and knead well.

Assembling the Kachori

Knead the dough again and pinch out equal balls.
Dust and roll to a small disc.
Place the stuffing in the centre and seal over the stuffing.
Flatten it and roll again lightly to form a small disc
Heat a kadai with oil and when the oil is hot, deep fry in batches to golden colour.
Make sure you fry these in low to medium flame for the kachoris to get cooked well and to stay crisp for a long time.

I only made about 2 cups of flour and half of the Moong dal. I adjusted as per need.
