How to make Chatpati Sattu Ki Kachori Recipe - Kachori Stuffed With Sattu And Pickle
To begin making Chatpati Sattu Kachori, we have to first make the filling for the kachori.
In a bowl, mix together the sattu flour, salt and ajwain. Add the mustard oil, lemon juice and rub them into the flour.
Next, add the red chilli pickle, squish & rub it into the sattu flour including the chilli skin and chilli stuffing. Mix everything well.
Add the finely chopped garlic, ginger, green chillies, onions and coriander leaves and mix everything well. Keep it aside. The masala for kachori is ready.
To make the pastry dough for kachori, mix together maida and sooji in a bowl. Add the oil and rub it into the flour with your fingers. Add water slowly, mix and make a stiff dough.
While you are making the dough, add ample oil to the frying pan and get it ready for deep frying the kachoris. Keep the frying pan on low medium heat.
The final step is to make the Kachori. Divide the dough in 30 equal parts and roll each into three and half inch size discs.
Take the required achari sattu masala and place it in the middle of the disc.
Bring the edges together and seal the top by slightly twisting it and pressing against the ball. Keep the balls covered with a moist cloth. Pat them a little to get a flat shape.
Once the oil is hot, slide in the kachoris one by one and fry them till the kachoris become golden brown in colour.
