Sheetal Kamat

Ma's specialty and one thing we always demand when we go to Pune. :) Its been a while since I took this recipe from her, infact I had made it earlier too but it hadn't come out as nice as she makes. This time it was quite close and I thought it would be perfect time to post it.

Muttor Kachori
2 Cup Maida
1 Cup Wheat Flour
1 Potato
3 Cup Muttor
1/4 Spoon Jeera
1/2 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
Salt to taste

  • Mix in maida, wheat flour, salt to taste and 1/2 cup oil.
  • Add in water and make dough. Keep aside.
  • Cook potato in the pressure cooker and keep it to cook.
  • Cook muttor with some water for 2 minutes in microwave.
  • Drain the water from the muttor and grind it in mixie
  • Once the potato cools down, grate it.
  • In a pan heat 1 spoon of oil and add jeera. Let it splutter
  • Add in grated potato, muttor paste, red chilli powder and salt to taste.
  • Cook till the paste dries up and becomes a dry ball. Let it cool down
  • Take a lemon sized ball of the dough made and press it to make a cup shape. Add in the half sized muttor-potato ball and seal it.
  • Roll it just like puris and fry in hot oil. Serve with pickle.

The trick is to make the dough of right consitency - not too hard not too soft and the perfect to seal it after the feeling.
Also roll the balls to the puri's thickness - just a bit thicker to get the best results.
