    Ingredients:

    For the dough
     
     All purpose flour - 2 Cups
     
     Ghee melted - ¼ Cup
     
     Salt - ½ tsp
     
     For the filling
     
     Moong dal - ½ Cup
     
     Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
     
     Asafoetida - ¼ tsp
     
     Ginger - Green Chilli paste - 1 tsp
     
     Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
     
     Garam Masala - 1 tsp
     
     Dried Mango Powder - 1 tbsp
     
     Gram Flour - 2 tbsp
     
     Oil - 3 tbsp
     
     Salt to taste
     
     Oil for deep frying
     

    Method:

    For the Crust
    • Mix all the ingredients using enough Water to make a soft dough. Knead for about 5 mins, cover and keep it aside.

    For the filling
    • Wash Moong Dal in Water.

    • Heat Oil in a pan, add Cumin Seeds, Asafoetida and then drain the Moong Dal and add to this pan. Saute for few seconds.

    • Add Ginger-Green Chilli paste, Chilli Powder, Garam Masala, Mango Powder, Gram Flour and Salt. Fry for about 5-7 mins or till the masalas are cooked.

    • Let it cool and make even sized rounds and keep aside.

    • Now roll out each portion of the dough to about 4" diameter circle.

    • Keep one portion of the filling mixture in the centre of the rolled dough, cover the filling by stretching the dough over the filling.

    • Seal the ends tightly.

    • Now roll this out into 4.5" diameter circle (make sure that the filling doesn't come out)

    • Gently press the centre of the Kachoris with your thumb.

    • Repeat the method with the remaining dough and the filling.

    • Deep fry these Kachoris in hot Oil on low flame till golden brown on both sides.

    • These take a long time to get cooked as the crust is thick and needs to be cooked well from inside.

    • Let it cool and then store it in an air tight container.

    • Just warm them up before serving, top it with some plain Yogurt and Green / Tamarind Chutney!
