First things first, when you prepare the dough for the kachoris, make sure that you mix the ghee properly with the maida or refined flour. To check this, try to make a ball of dough and it should not fall apart. If it does, then add some more ghee to it, the chef suggests.

Secondly, always use lukewarm water to knead the dough. If you use cold water for this purpose, the ghee will begin to solidify again and you will be left with small granules of ghee in the dough. The chef stresses that one must keep the dough soft and moist so that the kachoris turn out well. She says that people often prepare hard dough to make dal (lentils) kachori. But, she adds, the dough must be kept soft when making matar (peas) kachori.

Now, comes one of the most crucial step – frying. The chef explains that the oil should be slightly warm and not overheated to fry the kachoris perfectly. At last, remember to fry your kachoris on low flame to make them crispy and puffy.
