Koraishutir Kochuri | Bengali Stuffed Peas Pooris

Koraishutir Kochuri

Koraishutir kochuri is a pea stuffed maida poori from Bengali and is one of the finest delicacies you can enjoy from their cuisine.

Peas stuffed Pooris have been my favorite ever since I came to know about these. The first time was when I had visited Calcutta and got introduced to it in the city. What a joy it was! Later we were invited for dinner and feasted on these peas stuffed pooris.

Since then I have made different versions of this stuffed pooris and always end up remembering our one week stay at Calcutta when my parents lived there for 2 years. It is still one of the longest vacations we took with family when the boys were still babies.

So when I was making this list, I again thought about those days and remember seeing an authentic recipe starting with K and went in search of it. I have made Radhaballabhi, which is dal stuffed pooris. Then I have some Matar Luchis, Matar Kachoris, Stuffed Peas Pooris, Thanks to this post, I went back reading those and got so nostalgic all over again!. Never realised a simple Stuffed Peas Poori can invoke so much!

Anyway, I decided to make yet another version of these pooris that I had bookmarked and set about making it. Everybody loved it and the masala came out so well! I adapted the dish from here and had to make a smaller measurement and in the process had to change certain things. I had to grind the masala along with peas and then stuffed it.

We all loved it and I had paired it with a simple Moong Dal and the meal was heavenly! So for K, it is Koraishutir Kochuri in the A to Z Flatbread and More, where I am making AtoZ Indian Flatbread. If you are curious to know whats for K in the AtoZ Dosa Varieties hop over!
