For Filling

  • 1 cup gram flour (besan)
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mango powder

How to make Khasta Kachodi

Step 1 For making this yummy snack recipe, prepare the filling first. For that, heat half cup of oil in a pan on medium flame and add parboiled moong dal in it and saute for 10 minutes.

Step 2 Add gram flour in the pan and cook the dal for a few more minutes. Then add garam masala powder, dry mango powder (amchoor) and pomegranate seeds.

Step 3 Add the remaining oil and salt to the all purpose flour and knead a hard dough. Cover and keep this prepared dough for about 10-15 minutes.

Step 4 Divide the dough into equal portions, flatten each ball and put a teaspoon of the filling and close.

Step 5Keep all kachodis covered with a wet muslin cloth.

Step 6 In a kadahi, heat oil till it is smoking and remove from flames. Cool down the oil and put it again on low flame.

Step 7 Flatten kachodi a little at the top and put in oil one by one.

Step 8 Keep the kadahi on full flame and when kachodis puff up, lower the flame. Turn and fry the kachodis till golden in colour.

Step 9 Cool oil again and repeat the process with rest of the kachodis.

Step 10 Stir and mix thoroughly before serving.

Step 11 If desired, sprinkle a few drops of rose water/essence and serve with crushed ice in a glass.
