For Stuffing

  • cup Green Peas Fresh/Frozen
  • 1 inch Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Fennel Seeds
  • 1 or 2 no Green Chilli
  • teaspoon Asafoetida (Hing)
  • teaspoon Roasted Cumin Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Red Chilli Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Sugar (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoon Vegetable Oil

For Dough & Making of Kochuri

  • 3 cups All purpose flour (Maida)
  • 2 tablespoon Clarified Butter (Ghee)
  • Salt to taste
  • Water for kneading the dough
  • 4 cups Refined Oil or Vegetable Oil for deep frying


  • Prepare a dough using all purpose flour, ghee, salt and water as required. Cover the dough with a damp cloth so that it should not get dried. 
  • If you are using frozen peas, thaw them properly and bring them to room temperature. 
  • Take green peas, ginger piece and green chilli in a grinder and make a coarse paste.
  • Now heat oil in a pan and add fennel seed and asafoetida. Once they start crackling, add the coarse paste into it.
  • Next add all the dry spices along with salt and sugar. Mix them really well by stirring continuously. 
  • Once the mixture becomes little dry in nature, switch off gas and allow it to cool.  
  • Now make lemon size balls from the dough and stuff each ball with the prepared peas filling. Seal it properly.
  • Roll them like  circle with 3 inch diameter.
  • Heat oil in a wok and deep fry the rolled kochuris one by one under medium to high flame.
  • Once both sides are fried well, take them out on a kitchen towel so that extra oil gets absorbed.
  • Serve hot kochuris with dum aloo or your favorite curry.
