Matar Kachori

Third dish in our Holi special is Matar Kachori. It is made with green peas stuffing. The stuffing is very mildly spiced so that the flavors of the green peas come through. In this Kachori you will enjoy the soft texture of the filling, which contradicts the crusty, crispy outer covering! Enjoy this delicious Matar Kachori this festival season.
