  • In a mixing bowl add all purpose flour, salt and oil add water slowly while mixing and kneading to make firm, yet pliable dough. Cover and set dough aside for at least 10 minutes. Mix Kachori filling ingredients together, gram flour,hing,salt, chili flakes, mango powder and oil. Set aside. Making Kachori:Knead dough for a minute and divide into equal parts. Roll dough ball into a 2-inch diameter circle and place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center. Seal by pulling the edges together to make a ball. Prepare all kachories and let sit for 3 to 4 minutes. Place a filled kachori with the seam side up, onto a clean surface. Using a rolling pin roll into a circle, approximately 3 inches in diameter. Heat approximate inches of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. To check if oil is ready, put a little piece of dough into the oil and it should immediately rise to the surface without having changed color. Slowly drop kachories into the frying pan making sure they overlap one another. As kachories puff up, slowly turn them over and fry on all sides. Turn kachories 3-4 times until they are golden brown in color, which will take about 7 minutes. Kachories should be crisp. If the kachories are fried over high heat they will be too soft. Prepare Moong Sprouts Add teaspoon of salt and 2-3 tablespoons of water to the moong sprouts. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes till sprouts are tender. Set aside
