matar kachori recipe | matar ki kachori | peas kachori recipe with detailed photo and video recipe. a spicy deep fried snack recipe which is popular in north indian cuisine especially in delhi, rajasthan, gujarat and kota. it is believed that kachori’s were originated from rajasthan or uttar prasdesh and were very popular snack recipe until samosa was introduced to indian cuisine.
matar kachori recipematar kachori recipe | matar ki kachori | peas kachori recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. basically it is prepared with all purpose flour dough which is stuffed with the green peas plus spice masala and later deep fried to round flattened ball. there are several variations to this flaky and layered snack which often varies with its stuffing. the stuffing may vary with pyaj kachori, moong dal kachori, aloo ki kachori, mawa kachori and even kachori chaat recipe with sweet tamarind chutney.

i have already shared the authentic khasta kachori recipe which is prepared from moong dal and other spices stuffing. however i somehow felt that peas kachori was much more simpler and more tastier compared to previous one. in addition i even felt that the matar ki kachori was even more flaky and layered. this could be because i may have kneaded for longer time. or it could be because of the green peas which is comparatively more juicer and has more moisture compared to dry moong dal.

some important tips before jumping into the actual recipe for the perfect matar kachori recipe. typically the kachori’s served in restaurant’s or with the street vendors are extra fluffy because the dough is prepared with baking powder. i have not added in this recipe but you are more than welcome to add a pinch of it. secondly, matar ki kachori has to be deep fried in a low flame like samosa’s. otherwise the kachori’s would not turn flaky and crispy. lastly, you can serve these kachori’s with either potato curry or even with mango pickle. i personally like it with maggie hot and sweet tomato ketchup sauce.

finally, i would like to highlight my other snacks recipes collection with this post. this mainly includes, onion samosa, nippattu, seekh kabab, mysore bonda, rava vada, veg frankie recipe, khandvi, hara bhara kabab, bread pizza and garlic bread recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection board like,
