Green Peas Kachori With Spicy Dum Aloo (Koraishutir Kochuri R Aloor Dam) - SNC Challenge # 5

Its so wonderful to be a part of the 'South Vs North Challenge’ family. SNC is the brain-child of Divya Pramil of You Too Can Cook. This month for the 'South Vs North Challenge', the North team Sanoli has challenged the South team with GREEN PEAS KACHORI WITH SPICY DUM ALOO .

This wonderful delicacy is a Bengali dish and is made with green peas kachori and dum aloo. I have made and ofcourse had dum aloo several times. However, loved the flavour and the beautiful look of the green peas stuffed into the kachori and then accompanied with the baby potatoes, it was awesome and loved it so much.

 We at home enjoyed this Bengali dish so much. Thank you Sanoli for this wonderful recipe.

I am part of the South team

Ingredients For Green Peas Kachori:

For Filling:

4 Cups Green Peas
4 Green Chillies
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
1 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp roasted Cumin seeds (powdered)
1 tbsp Clarified Butter or ghee
Salt to taste

(Does this cutie look adorable? I could not resist making this small cutie pie with mashed peas, ginger paste, peper corns and tomato slice.)

For Kachoris:

 3 Cup All Purpose Flour
½ tsp Salt
4 tbsps Oil + Oil for Deep Frying


How to make filling with Green Peas:

Grind green peas along with 4 green chillies. Add few drops of water while grinding. 

Grind peas to make a coarse paste, not very smooth. Set aside.

Heat 1 tbsp clarified butter in a pan or wok. Add asafoetida in it.

Now add pounded green peas in it. Fold for a minute. Put
ginger paste in it. Mix it well.

 Now add roasted cumin powder, sugar and salt in it. Keep stirring continuously and let all the excess water evaporates from the pounded green peas mixture.

 When the mixture is almost getting dry, remove it from heat. Filling is ready now, keep it aside.

How to make Kachoris:

   Combine all purpose flour, salt and 4 tbsps oil in a large bowl. Knead it nicely by adding little water in it to make a smooth dough.

Now make 25 equal small balls from the dough and divide the green filling in 25 equal parts.

Grease a rolling board with 2-3 drops of oil. Place a flour ball on it.

Flat it with a rolling pin to make a circle of approximately 3" diameter. Place a portion of green peas filling on the middle of the flour circle. Cover it with flour dough.

Carefully seal it from all edges. Close it well and make a round  ball again. Stuff other flour balls with fillings same way like this.

With a rolling pin flatten a stuffed ball 4" wide pressing very gently and give a shape into a kachori. Be careful, filling should not come out.

Flatten all stuffed balls and give a shape into kachoris.

Heat enough oil in a wok for deep frying, till smoky. Add kachori in it. Flip when one side is golden, fry both sides till it done. Drain oil and keep aside.

Continue the process for remaining kachoris.

Ingredients For Dum Aloo With Baby Potatoes:

750 gm Baby Potatoes
¼ tsp Asafoetida
½ tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Fennel seeds
1 Bay leaf
Handful of Green Peas
3-4 Green Chillies (chopped)
1 large Tomato (chopped)
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Cumin powder
2 tsps Ginger paste
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Kashmiri Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Sugar (for flavour)
1/2 tsp freshly grounded Garam Masala
2 tbsps finely chopped Coriander Leaves (cilantro)
3/4 cup Sour Curd / Plain Yogurt (thick)
4 tbsps Oil
Salt to taste

How To Make Dum Aloo

  Wash baby potatoes nicely. Drain water from it.

Pressure cook potatoes, till it tendered (I cooked upto 3 whistles). When cold peel potatoes and set aside.

  Heat oil in a wok. Add potato, fry till it turn into golden. Drain oil, keep fried potatoes aside.

  Temper with bay leaf, asafoetida, cumin seeds and fennel seeds in the same oil. Saute for 30-40 seconds.

  Now add green peas in it. Fry for 2 minutes.

  Add chopped tomato and green chillies in it. Mix well.

  Put all dry spices, ginger paste and salt in it. Fold nicely for another 4-5 minutes till oil separates from spices. Add sugar and fried potatoes in it. Mix well for another 2-3 minutes on medium heat.

Add sour curd now. Fold for another 2 minutes, followed by adding 1/2 cup water in it. Cook for another 4 minutes. Add coriander leaves and switch off the heat now.

   Serve hot Green Peas Kachori with Dum Aloo.
