For the dough

  • 3 cups of Maida or all purpose flour
  • 2.5 to 3 tablespoons of ghee or oil
  • water as required
  • salt as per taste

For the green peas stuffing

  • 1 to 2 cups of fresh or frozen green peas
  • 1 tablespoon besan or gram flour
  • 1 to 2 green chillies finely chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 whole green cardamom
  • 1 or 2 pinches of garam masala powder
  • a pinch of Hing or asafoetida
  • 1 to 1.5 teaspoon oil
  • sugar as required
  • salt as per taste
  • oil for deep frying

Method of Preparation:

  1. Take a bowl, add the maida, salt and ghee. Now mix it and knead it to a soft and smooth dough by adding water in intervals.
  2. Once the dough is ready, cover it with a wet cloth and keep it aside for 30 to 45 minutes at room temperature.
  3. In a small bowl, take out the peas from the pea pod, or if you are using the frozen ones, make sure keep them out of the refrigerator for 5 minutes and let them defrost.
  4. Wash the peas thoroughly and then grind them into a semi-coarse consistency without adding any water.
  5. Now, heat some oil in a kadhai and at a low flame, add all the spices one by one. Fry them for 2 to 3 seconds and then add the ground peas, salt and sugar to it.
  6. Stir continuously and saute the mixture for 3 minutes. Add the besan and keep on stirring for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Once complete, bring down the stuffing in a bowl and let it cool at room temperature for some time.
  8. When the stuffing has cooled, make small balls out of it and keep aside. Meanwhile, heat oil in a kadhai for deep frying.
  9. Make lemon-sized balls from the dough and keep it covered with the wet cloth. Take one ball and flatten it with the help of your palm.
  10. Apply oil on both sides of the ball and using a rolling pin roll the ball to a 3 inches diameter circle. Place the stuffing at the centre and bring all the edges of the dough and press them together.
  11. Apply some more oil and roll it to a circle of 4 to 5 inches. To check if the oil is prepared for frying, drop a small piece of dough into the oil and if it starts frying, then the oil is ready for cooking.
  12. Gently drop the kochuri in the hot oil and with the help of a slotted spatula apply gentle pressure on it, to help it puff. When one side puffed, turn the kochuri and fry it on the other side.
  13. Once your kochuri appears crispy and in a golden creame colour, remove it from the kadhai with the help of the slotted spatula and place it on a kitchen towel to drain excess oil.

Now your Motor Shutir kochuri is ready to eat. Serve it with aloor dum or cholar dal.
