  • Cover the dough with damp cloth and leave for 30 minutes.
  • Grind the drained beans with the chili powder, salt and spices to make stuffing.
  • Mix well and divide it into 16 equal portions.
  • Divide the dough into 16, using wet hands, and smear each portion with a little oil.
  • Flatten and roll out into 2inch round.
  • Wrap one portion of stuffing in each round and roll into a smooth ball, using greased hands.
  • Flatten and roll into a 3-4 inch round.
  • Heat plenty of oil in a deep frying pan or a kadhai.
  • Now lift the rolled kachori and carefully slip it into the hot oil.
  • Immediately start flickering hot oil over the top of it with a spatula so that it will swell up like a ball.
  • This should take only a few seconds.
  • Flip the kachori over and cook the other side until golden brown.
  • Serve the dal kachori hot with chutney.
