Khasta Kachori is a deep fried snack item. Khasta means flaky and Kachoris filled with lentils & spices and deep fried are called Khasta Kachoris. These Kachoris are always fried on low flame as this helps in crispy crust and well cooked from inside. This can be stored for a week in an air tight container. Serve them with hot tea!



Preparation Time:

15 mins

Cooking Time:

30 mins


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


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!
