Kachori is a delicacy which is considered both time consuming and difficult to make especially in modern days.But here is my mom-in-law's simple kachori recipe which is both tasty and quick.I make this kachori often and every one likes it.


  • Aata (wheat flour) 2 cups
  • 1 cup soaked urad dal(soak it overnight)
  • 1" piece ginger
  • Moti saunf 2&1/2 tsp.
  • Black pepper 1 tsp.
  • Red chilli powder 1 tsp.(optional)It gives a nice color
  • Heeng 1/2 tsp.
  • Salt
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 black cardamom
  • Water
  • Oil for frying


  • Grind saunf,black pepper,cloves,cardamom.
  • Make a coarse paste of urad dal.
  • Add all this in aata,add salt and oil and red chilli powder,grated ginger,heeng and now make a hard dough.
  • Roll it out a little thick and fry in hot oil till red,it will take more time than puri.
