How to make the Filler from Dal - Grind the soaked dal in a grinder. Heat oil in a pan and put cumin seeds, coriander powder, anise powder, green chilli and ginger into it. Roast the masala well and add ground dal to it. Mix the dal well with the masala and roast it. Turn off the flame once the dal turns brown in colour and add coriander leaves and garam masala into the mixture. The stuff to fill the kachori is ready.
Heat in a deep pan to fry the kachori. Let the oil heat to the desired temperature. Meanwhile, make around 20 balls of the dough. Make a small dent in one ball and stuff it with 1 tea spoon dal filler. Press the ball with hands so that the stuff settles down inside it. Now roll the stuffed ball into a flat thick disc with the help of a roller. Make sure you use less energy and roll it with light hands, else the filler will come out of the ball. Now put this kachori into the oil and fry until it gets brown in colour. Take it out on a plate and make rest of the kachoris in the manner. You can easily fry 3-4 kachori at one time. The picture is given showing you the stuffed ball and rolled out ball.
Your Khasta Kachori is ready. Serve it with green coriander chutney.
