Matar Kachori

Matar Kachori is a flaky kachori stuffed with spiced matar masala. The flaky outer shell makes this an excellent snack to enjoy during Tea Time.

The next snack from Rajasthan is the matar kachori where the fresh peas is ground and cooked with spices to make a spicy filling inside the flaky outer maida shell. Kachoris are a popular snack from North Indian states and while these seem be available all over the northern states, few like these matar kachoris, pyaz kachoris, mawa kachoris are very popular from Rajasthan.

I had got the third week dishes done and was lagging behind for this week, especially the Rajasthan dishes. So I had to club everything together and cooked over Sunday. All the snacks disappeared by the evening. I was so glad when Peddu had these kachoris and wanted me to make another batch right away. I said he surely needs to wait until I complete the list to make these again.

This makes a delicious Tea Time Snack and if you more ideas, then check out other Tea Time Snacks.

  1. I always wonder how you manage to cook that many dishes at one time. The filling sounds delicious and the crisp kachoris are one of the tempting snacks, no wonder the kid was asking for more.

  2. Valli, Mattar ki kachori looks delicious. The outer layer looks crisp and fluffy. Filling is so flavourful.
    Ok, my daughter wants to add her 2 cents. They look delicious. Mom, you should make these soon…..
