Instructions

How to make Club Kachori Recipe

    Making the Puris

    • Soak the urad daal for a couple of hours, at least for 2 hours, and grind it into a coarse paste using just enough water.
    • In a bowl, add in the flour, rava, salt and mix well. Add in the urad dal paste and make a dough adding yogurt little by little.
    • Add in a tsp of ghee / cooking oil and knead for 2 mins. Cover the dough with a muslin cloth and let it rest for at least 15 mins.
    • I added all the ingredients together though.
    • When ready to make the pooris, knead the dough once again and divide it into equal balls.
    • Dust and roll out to 5 or 6 inch discs.
    • Heat cooking oil in a kadai and deep fry the discs on both sides. Drain on to a kitchen towel.
    • Serve hot with pumpkin curry.

    For making the Kaddu Aloo Subji

    • Take a pressure cooker, add in the cooking oil. Now, add the mustard, jeera, methi seeds, and kalonji.
    • After a few seconds, add the ginger garlic paste.
    • Now, add the onions, chopped green chilies, chopped vegetables, and give a good stir.
    • Simmer to slow flame and cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
    • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Simmer for 5 mins. Now, add in some water and let it boil.
    • Cover with lid and cook until 4 whistles.
    • Once the pressure falls, remove and boil for 5 mins till the consistency is good.
    • Garnish with coriander leaves.
    • Serve with pooris.

    Notes

    Adding sugar to the subzi makes the sabzi more balanced. I added just a bit, though the original recipe calls for 2 tsp. To improve the gravy consistency, mash up some cooked vegetable pieces. Increase the amount of Rava and dal if you want more crisp pooris.
