I love kachori a lot and i usually enjoy eating outside. But one day, when i tasted the kachori, made by my sister in law, it was so awesome and i could not recognize whether it is home made or bought from outside.

Method for making Jhatpat Kachori

Firstly, we have to make the filling for the kachori. So, lets start.

For filling

  • Take a pan. Heat oil and add asafoetida. Add the onions and fry till they are translucent.
  • Add the ginger and greenchilli paste. Fry for some more time.
  • Add the mashed potatoes and saute for few minutes.
  • Add the garam masala, salt and coriander leaves.

For making Dough

Take a bowl. Add maida, salt and oil. Make a soft dough (not too soft), with the help of water and keep aside.

For making kachori

  • Take a small portion of dough and make a small roti.
  • Take a bread and cut it into a small circle shape, removing the sides. We can use a bowl or anything which is round and sharp to cut the bread in a circle shape.
  • Place this piece of bread into the maida roti, exactly in the middle.
  • Now on the bread, add the filling (potato mixture) and fold the sides of the roti to the middle. Just nicely press and roll slowly over it 2-3 times.
  • You can also make a different shape of it, any shape of your choice.
  • Now deep fry in a slow flame.
  • When they are dark brown, remove in an absorbent paper and serve hot.
