This recipe is a winter special,so enjoy with family and friend for weekend breakfast, before winter food celebration ends.

Ingredients for green peas paste

1.Green peas-250gms(weight without the shells)
2.Asafoetida(Heeng)- 1/4tsp
3.Green chilly-1no
4.Cumin seeds-1tsp
5.Salt to taste


In a frying pan add 2tsp oil.Add cumin,chilly and asafoetida.Allow to splutter,add green peas and salt.Cook till the peas have become soft.Allow it to cool and blend them in a blender to form a coarse paste.

Ingredients for kachori dough

1.Whole wheat flower-1 cups
2.Maida(all purpose flower)-1 cups
3.Refined oil-2tsp
5.Salt-1tsp(or as per taste)


Mix all the ingredients and knead into a dough with the help of water.
Divide the dough into small balls needed to make kachori.Stuff the balls with green peas paste and roll them into kachoris.Deep fry the kachoris from both sides.Serve hot with dum aloo or raita.

Note-Be gentle and careful while rolling the kachoris with rolling pin,as green peas paste should not come out.
Although I have not used ajwain in the image shown but it gives an added taste to the kachoris plus helps in digestion too.
