Today I am sharing a step by step recipe of Matar Kachori. Matar Kachori is a Indian Flat Bread which is stuffed with peas and then fried till crisp. It is a very flaky and crisp bread.

I usually avoid to much of oily things in day to day menu but sometimes I made kachori (Indian fried puff pastries ) and paratha’s ( stuffed flat bread) just to add some variety in my daily menu .

We Indians  really like fried stuff for breakfast. In the countryside they like to have paratha with buttermilk and homemade white butter. Actually, they are very hardworking they leave home early in the morning and they spend the whole day working in farms or factories and return back only in the evening. So for them heavy breakfast is really important, it gives energy for the whole day and they don’t feel hungry .

For us as we live in the urban areas we don’t do much hard work we just sit at one place like offices and also we have to be a little conscious about our diet . We can’t afford oily stuff daily but once in while we can enjoy these delicacies .

Recipe:

 Coming back to the point Mutter kachori  is a very popular street food of Delhi and we often make it at home also some people like it with Aloo ki sabji ( potato curry) but I like it with tangy tasty tomato chutney . You can enjoy either way . These stuffed balls are so delicious that you can’t resist them for long!

so here we go …..A very simple yet delicious recipe..

Notes

  • If you are little calorie conscious but want to enjoy this tasty kachori you can reduce oil in kachori dough , I often do that as my husband is not very fond of too oily and crispy kachoris so for them I reduce oil quantity to just half and to reduce crispness  I avoid baking powder too. Taste is superb either way .
