How to make Matar Paneer Kachori Korma Recipe - Green Peas And Paneer Kachori Curry

  1. To begin making the Matar Paneer Kachori Korma Recipe, we will firstly make the dough for kachori.

Dough for the Kachori
  1. Mix maida, salt, carom seeds, oil in a bowl and mix till you get crumbly texture. Then add cold water to this slowly. The dough has to be stiff and shouldn't be kneaded for long.

  2. Once the dough is done, let this rest for 15 to 20 minutes. 

  3. The next step is to make the filling for Kachori. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan, add green peas, salt and all dry spices including turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, salt and pepper. 

  4. Let it cook for about 4 to 5 minutes while slightly mashing the peas in between. 

  5. After 4 minutes, add the crumbled paneer to this and mix well. Let it simmer for 2 minutes and take it out in a bowl. Keep it aside to cool down.

  6. Take a ball size dough and roll it like a roti but slightly thicker. Take a 2.5" diameter lid or cookie cutter and cut the circles. 

  7. Now add a small teaspoon of the paneer and matar mixture in the middle and seal them using water on the edges. Pat them a little to make it flat and keep them aside.

  8. To make the Kachoris, heat the required oil in a frying pan. 

  9. When the oil is hot, add the kachoris and fry them for 5 to 6 minutes until they turn golden brown and crispy on both the sides.

  10. Once done, take them out on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil and place aside.
