Delicious to the core, that’s what this Matar ki Kachori is! You would never have, really, tasted a kachori with such a flavourful filling.


Crushed green peas are pepped up with a rather snazzy assortment of spices, of which nigella seeds really stands out, with its prominent flavour. You will also enjoy the soft texture of the filling, which contradicts the crusty, melt-in-the-mouth covering!


Serve these kachoris for Breakfast or Evening Tea Snacks with Green Cutney and Khajur Imli Ki Chutney . When served Dahiwali Aloo ki Subzi the combo makes a satisfying meal.

Hi, I just wanted to know for how many days will these stay, if stored in an air-tight container?

   Hi Surabhi, We have not tried storing it but, probably they won''t stay fresh for more than a day.

Loved the recipe. The kachoris remained crisp when stored, usually the ones I make torn soggy in a day or two.??
