Sweet Corn Kachori



This is one recipe which is a great snack for everyone. There are many stuffing which U can fill in your kachori .....but this time I have tried my favourite  sweetcorn as a stuffing ...it was just awesome and even the outer crust was very crispy just loved it :)

Ingredients


For the dough 

2 cup Maida

4 tbsp very hot oil

salt to taste

2 pinches of soda

1 tsp sugar

For the stuffing

1 1/2 cup boiled sweet corn

3-4 finely chopped green chillies

1 tsp cumin seeds

4-5 black peppercorns

1 tsp carom seeds

2 tbsp gram flour

1 tsp fennel seeds

2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

1 tsp chaat masala powder

salt to taste 

Oil to deep fry

Method

For the dough

    • Sieve the maida with soda and salt and then mix it well with sugar and with hot oil, then add little water and knead into a stiff dough and then cover it with a muslin cloth and keep aside for half an hour

  • For the stuffing

    • Dry roast cumin seeds & peppercorns and then grind it to a coarse powder and keep aside

    • Heat 1 tsp oil and roast the gramflour till fragrant and then keep aside

    • Grind 3/4 th cup boiled corn coarsely and then keep aside

    • Heat 2 tsp oil, add carom seeds,fennel seeds, when it changes its colour add ginger, garlic, green chillies and fry for 1-2 minutes

    • Add corn, coarse corn paste,gramflour,coriander leaves,ground cumin seeds-peppercorns,salt,chaat masala powder and mix well and cook for 5 minutes and then keep it aside to cool
    For the kachori

    • Knead the dough again and then divide it in equal portions
    • Take one portion and flatten it slightly and then put 1 tsp of corn mixture in to and close the edges, and then roll it with the help of a rolling pin into a small round shape semi-thick puri and in the same manner repeat it for the rest of the dough and mixture
    • Heat oil in a pan, when its hot fry one kachori at a time on a medium flame till golden brown and crisp, drain on a kitchen towel and then serve hot with green chutney and tamarind chutney

    ( Note: Put kachori's in hot oil and with the help of a spatula put oil all over the kachori till it puffs up and then only turn it on the other side and fry on a low or medium flame till golden brown and crisp & adding hot oil while making the dough keeps it crispier for a longer time)

    1. aaah.... kachori.... you really enlightened the old memories...

      We had a mamaji near our house who used to run a shop selling all namkeen items. He was a friend of my marwadi neighbour and used to send daily kachoris to our house.

      My father also bought kachoris and samosas every day.

      After coming here almost forget of all this... you made me remeber it again ... thanks...

      Sweetcorn as a stuffing ... never tried it but hope this would be classy...

      Again happy for that lucky small boy...who can have all these recipes made by his mother...

    37. wow! kachoriiiiiiiiii - how did you manage to do it so well. Perfectly shaped ones.

      Long time ago (when I was 18 or 19yrs old) when I tried making samosa at home, they ended up getting kachori's shape as couldnt get the samosa shape. So my cousins called it " Kasamosa" (Ka from Kachori and Samosa) which in Tamil means confusions. He he! you kachori reminded of my teasing story.
