Aloo Kachori | Potato Stuffed Kachori |North Indian Style

If you belong to a North Indian Family, aloo kachori is a very familiar and loved name. I came to know about this recipe from my mother-in-law and this is her version of stuffed aloo kachori. And I believe, this is the best one I have ever tried.

Kids will also love this kachori. Even my fussy eating kid is a great fan of these aloo kachori. Poori and kachori are my husband’s favorite food too. So this is common dish which is made very often especially on weekends and a compulsory menu during any celebrations.

This is a great breakfast option or tea time snacks. We make this from whole wheat flour and hence this is healthy for our tummy also. Because of potato stuffing, this is filling as well.

So if you are worried about your kid’s tiffin box, this is one of the best food item. It doesn’t take much time also to prepare. Only thing you need to take care is boil potatoes and cool it completely before using.

You can make potato mixture from night and keep in freeze. In morning just stuff it in puri and fry in hot oil.

Potato stuffing you can prepare by mixing mashed potatoes with other spices or by sauteing them with spices. But in that case again you need to cool it completely. You can add finely chopped onions, minced garlic, finely chopped green chillies and coriander leaves with the stuffing masala.

I have used boiled potatoes and added the spices to it before stuffing. My mom doesn’t even need rolling pin to make this aloo kachori. She is an expert in making it or say rolling it with her palms only.

However I do use rolling pin to make circles. Don’t make in large size as it may make the layer very thin and stuffing may come out. When using rolling pin, don’t press it very hard. Roll it with light hand so that edges will be intact and not open up with stuffing.

Another important step is making soft dough. Use fruit salt or Eno along with curd for dough of kachori. I use Eno and hung curd. You can use home made curd also. This makes the layer soft and crispy at the same time. Then knead it well. Leave it covered for 5 – 10 minutes before starting.

Serve these aloo kachori with tea as tea time snacks or with plain curd / raita for breakfast. Even with raita or green coriander chutney, it tastes equally great.
