Preparing Dough for Paneer Kachori
To knead the dough for Paneer Kachori, first of all take flour in an open pan. In this recipe, wheat flour has been used to make Kachori. If you want, you can use half all-purpose flour / maida and half whole wheat flour in the dough to make the kachoris a little more crispy. Ghee is mixed in the flour as well and now mix the flour and ghee well. If you want to add carom seeds / ajwain to it, then mix it together now.
Knead the flour by adding water in small quantity at a time. We have to knead soft dough.
When the dough for Kachori is ready, cover it and keep it aside for 20 minutes.
Prepare Stuffing for Paneer Kachori
Meanwhile, let’s prepare the paneer stuffing.
For this, grate the paneer pieces and keep them. If you are using homemade or fresh market paneer, you can grate it directly, but if you are using frozen packet paneer, take it out of the refrigerator 3 to 4 hours before use. When the paneer is at room temperature (not very cold) then it can be washed and grated with a grater.
Heat one spoon of ghee in a pan and add cumin seeds to it. When the cumin gets roasted, asafoetida is added to it and the rest of the spices are also mixed in it.
Add coriander powder, turmeric, red chili powder, salt, kasoori methi and garam masala to it. If you want, you can also use ginger garlic paste instead of asafoetida.
Fry all the spices together.
Now mix paneer in this mix and turn off the gas.
Now the stuffing for the kachori is ready. Keep the paneer kachori stuffing aside to cool down. In the next step, we will start making Kachori.
Frying Paneer Kachori
To make Kachori, divide the prepared dough into small parts. To fry the kachoris in a pan, the oil is kept for heating.
Roll out one portion of the dough and place the prepared paneer stuffing in the center. This step is exactly the same as the one we follow for making stuffed parathas.
The paneer stuffing is well sealed inside the dough.
Now let’s roll it again. To roll out the stuffing dough, very lightly roll the rolling pin. If desired, it can be prepared without rolling it by applying little pressure between the palms.
In the meantime, the oil has become medium hot, to fry kachori in it, leave it slowly by the side of the pan sliding in oil.
Fry the kachori till it turns golden brown in color from both the sides. Now take out the kachoris and keep them aside and similarly prepare the rest of the kachoris.
Paneer kachoris are now ready. Serve hot Paneer Kachori with vegetables, pickles, tea or chutney of your choice.
