Among all the festivals HOLI is the most color full festival of India. Almost all parts of India celebrate the color full festival. Every year we all wait for this special day with lots of fun and food. HOLI is known as DOLL JATRA in West Bengal. Especially in SHantiniketan they celebrate the day a huge way with POUSH MELA, every year plenty of people visit Shantiniketan to become a part of this color full festival.

A sweet dish is must for an occasion but a namken dish makes you feel better. So on that purpose I prepared some KHASTA KACHURI. This one is a very famous in Kolkata as well as in North India as a snack, With any chutney this one just perfect for any small tea party.

Preparation time: 5 mints.
Cooking time: 15 mints.

For Dough.
1.All-purpose flour. : 1 cup.
2.Pinch of salt and sugar.
3.Two table spoon oil.
4.Some cold water.

For stuffing:
1.Grounded moong dal : three table spoon.
2.Half tea spoon fennel powder.
3. Half tea spoon coriander powder.
4.Pinch of red chili flakes.
5. Half tea spoon aamchur powder.
6. Half tea spoon ginger powder.
7.Pinch of Hing or Asafoetida. 
8.Pinch of salt.
9.One tea spoon oil.
10.Oil for deep frying.


Make smooth dough with all the mentioned ingredients and keep it aside for 30 mints.

Now take one bowl and add all the dry ingredients for stuffing as mentioned above and mix well.

Now add one tea spoon oil and mix well.

Now dry roast all the mixture till it becomes little brown.

Now make small balls with the dough. Add little water to the stuffing mixture to make it little soft.

Now divide the dough into small balls. Add half tea spoon of filling mixture of the center of the dough balls and fill it.

Close the opening well and flatten it. Now roll them in to small round shape Kachuri’s with the help of your palm (don't use rolling pin).

Deep fry the Kachuri’s till they turn golden brown, soaked the extra oil in a paper towel.

Serve hot the KHASTA KACHURI with some tamarind chutney and green chili chutney.
