Green Peas Kachori with Spicy Dum Aloo - SNC -5

This month Northern team's challenge to southern team - Green peas kachori with Spicy Dum Aloo  by Sanoli Ghosh  and Southern team challenge to Northern team was Rice Dumplings in Sweet Coconut Sauce by Tamilarasi Sasikumar.

I am a part of Southern Team. 

Now coming to this month Northern team's challenge - Traditional and Seasonal  Bengali Delicacy Green Peas Kachori with North Indian Style Spicy Dum Aloo ( Baby potatoes).

Ingredients for Green Peas Kachori :
For Kachoris:
all purpose floor - 3 cups
salt - half tsp
oil- 4 tbsp + oil for frying

Steps to follow:

Combine all purpose floor, 4 tbsp oil and salt in a large bowl. Knead it nicely adding water little by little to it to make a smooth dough. Keep  aside.
For Green Peas Filling:
I made the filling  less  quantity.
green peas- 1 cup
green chilli - 1
asafoetida - a pinch
grated ginger - half tsp
sugar - half tsp
roasted cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
ghee - 1tsp
salt - to taste.

How to make filling with green peas:

Grind peas and a  green chilli along with little water to a coarse paste.

Heat ghee in a pan add  asafoetida and grated ginger.
Then add the paste,salt,cumin powder and sugar.
Keep on stirring until it becomes cooked and completely dry.
Now the dough and green peas filling is ready.
Divide the dough into small equal portions and also divide the green peas filling .I divide it into seven equal portions.
Now grease a rolling board with few drops of oil or dust with flour , Roll each portion into a small circle.
Place the portion of green peas filling in the middle of the circle and bring all the edges together and seal it.

Stuff the other balls also like this.

Flatten gently the all stuffed balls into round shape (Kachori shape)

Flatten all the Stuffed balls and keep aside.

Heat enough oil and fry until the both sides are golden brown.

Drain oil and keep aside.Continue the process for remaining kachoris.

Yummy Green Peas Kachoris are ready.

For Spicy Dum Aloo:
baby potatoes - 500gm
oil - 4 tbsp
asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
bay leaf-1
green peas - half cup
green chilli - 2
tomato -1
ginger paste - 1tsp
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
red chilli powder- 1 tsp
cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
curd -1/2 cup
sugar -1/2 tsp
chopped corainder leaves - 2 tbsp
salt - to taste.

Steps to follow:
Wash baby potatoes thoroughly.
Pressure cook the potatoes  for 4 whistle till soft. Peel the potatoes and keep aside.

Heat 4 tbsp oil in a  a non stick shallow fry pan and  fry until golden colour. I only shallow fried the potatoes not deep fried.

Drain and keep aside.
In the same pan add asafoetida, fennel seeds,cumin seeds and bay leaf. Saute it for few seconds.
Add green peas in it, fry for 2 minutes.Then add chopped tomato and green chilli to it.Stir well.

Put ginger paste and all dry spice powders to it, Stir well.

Sprinkle little water to it. Cook until oil separates.
Then add fried potatoes and sugar, mix well and leave for 2 minutes.

Then add curd and mix well.
Add half cup water to it.
Mix and dum the aloo for another 5 minutes in a low flame.
Open and sprinkle the chopped coriander leaves and switch off the stove.

Now the delicious Spicy Dum Aloo is ready to serve.
