Yum
Hi my dear friends, hope all you enjoyed your weekends, I couldn't post regularly because of my lovable  lappy had hard drive problem and its gone to meet technicians and hope it will get full energy after the new hard drive inserted to it... Still then I have no chance to regular blogging, so am extremely sorry my dear co-blogger friends and my readers... I lost nearly 30 recipes with all step by step pictures:( so am really very sad and have to think of that recipe and have to do it again for post... This is very tough time for me even I lost many personal photos of ours... Moreover I lost some delectable recipes like rasmalai, thinai ladoo, zebra cake, strawberry ice creams & so on... N my innovative marie biscuit sweet  too which is I made for valentine's day post... all are gone away... very disappointed and I need some time to re collect all recipes and have to post the recipes here... Till then I have plan for something, will come soon with the details...But I try to recover the photos yet from my SD card will see if I get it I will be very happy like in heaven!!! Now I posting the recipe from my old lappy and using TV as Monitor:)

OK!! Friends, as am from Southern team, I have to do Kachori, before going to Kachori I would like to ask apologize to Meena and Manju to couldn't do your challenges but I make sure in future really I loved the Misal pav and Ghevar even I don't know the taste of ghevar so these are must try in my to do lists... N my sorry to Divya for not participating on the past two challenges and I feel I missed somethings....  So no further delay I took immediate action to prepare the yummy kachori on last sunday (3rd Feb)...

Little about the Kachori and Dum Aloo 
Kachori is very lovely recipe which is so popular in North India.. They are many types of kachori like aloo kachori, sweet kachori, lentil kachori & so on... The green peas kachori is one of the traditional food in Bengali which is made from fresh green peas stuffed in all purpose flour dough and deep fried in oil/Ghee with the combo of Dum aloo gravy.... 


My Twists in the recipe (Over all I reduced the measurements according to 2 servings)

  • Kachori 
    • I ground the green peas and green chillies in a traditional Mortar and Pestle (ஆட்டுக்கல்) because that time as usual the power was cut so my sithi helped me to grind the yummy thing and its more tasty while grinding in this method instead of using our electric mixie... we use it often... 
    • For the dough making - I took equal amount of whole wheat flour with all purpose flour coz I don't have enough stock of all purpose flour.
  • Dum Aloo
    • Most of my blogger friends known that I hate yogurt so I replaced the yogurt with fresh cream/rice flour cream (3 Tsp Rice flour + 4 Tsp of water) but in this recipe I used fresh cream later I tried with the rice flour cream too, sure no compromise on taste it was really delectable....

Preparation of Green peas filling

  • First grind the washed green peas and green chillies in a mortar and pestle/Mixie to coarse mixture and keep it aside.


My Sithi (mom's younger sister) was helped me to grind this,
THANK U SO MUCH SITHI TO HELPED ME!!! 

  • Heat oil in a pan, add hing and fry for 5 seconds and add the green peas and chilli mixture to the pan fry for 5 minutes followed by add the ginger, cumin powder, sugar and salt and fry till the moisture content evaporates... It required to make stiff ball like dough consistency for me it nearly takes 8-10 minutes and switch off the flame.


 Final Preparation of Green peas Kachori

  • Take the dough and green peas filling and divide into equal balls like in gooseberry size. 
  • Heat enough oil for deep frying on medium-high flame but no smoky.
  • Now flatten the dough with rolling pin in a dust counter top or rolling table into a small circle.
  • Place the filling ball into the center circle and cover the all edges and make a ball like shown in picture. 
  • Now flatten the stuffed ball with very careful and the stuffing won't be out from the dough.
  • Next deep fry the disc in a oil until golden brown by flip it both sides and keep it in a absorbent paper.





SPICY DUM ALOO 
  • If you are using normal potatoes cut into cubes and shallow fry it in 2 Tbsp of oil in a pan till it turns golden brown and keep it aside.
  • Now in the same oil add hing, cumin, fennel and bay leaves fry for 30 seconds.
  • Add green chillies and tomato to it and fry for 3 minutes then add 1/4 cup of peas fry for another 5 minutes. 
  • Now add turmeric, cumin, red chilli, coriander, garam masala, sugar and salt to it fry till the raw smell goes.
  • Now add fresh cream to the mixture and stir it once and let it cook for 3 minutes then add 1/4 cup of water to it and allow to cook for 10 minutes. 


  • Garnish with coriander leaves and switch off the flame and ready to serve.
