Dough for the kachori and pithi to fill the kachori are now ready. Put oil in the frying pan and heat it. Take out a small lump (size of lemon) from the dough and shape it like a ball. Roll and flatten the dough into a disk of 1 ½ to 2 inches diameter. Put one small spoon of pithi on the flattened dough and close it with your fingers. Now press it into an oval shape so that the pithi spreads evenly inside it. Now again roll it into a flattened disk of 2 ½ to 3 inches diameter. Like this use all the dough and pithi to make these flattened disks. Now put 3 to 4 of these dough disks in the frying pan and fry them till they turn light brown. Take them out in a plate. Put another lot of flattened dough in the frying pan. Like this fry all the pieces.
