Aloo matar ki kachodi

Sorry for my looooooong silence from this blog. I have been away from it for past one year.
In this one year I had a lovely baby daughter. She is 5 months old now. All my time just went into
taking care of two kids :)

So here I am back with aloo matar kachodi recipe.

2 large boiled potatoes
one cup frozen mater
1 tbsp kasoori methi
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
2 cup flour

oil to fry

Need the flour with lukewarm water and get a consistency softer than you normal chapatis.
In a fry pan, heat 1 tbsp oil and put cumin seeds. When seeds crackle, put green peas and fry them a little. Add peeled and boiled and hand pressed potatoes. Saute for 5 minutes and add black pepper powder and salt and kasoori methi. Saute for another 3-4 minutes. Now using your potato masher, mash the mixer (see picture below) and let this mixture cool.
Now heat oil in a wok to fry on medium high. Take tennis ball size dough and flatten it and fill with 1 tbsp of mloo matar mixer. Roll it and deep fry it. Make all kachoris like this. Black pepper gives a very nice taste to this kachori. Please don't eat these kachoris with pickle. You will spoil the original heavenly taste of kachoris. They taste great.
