How to Make Amazing Koraishutir Kochuri

In India especially on the East and Northern sides, kachuri is a very famous and mothering dish. You cannot control yourself when you see the hot fluffy kachuris are so nicely arranged with runny potato curry in roadside stalls. How to Make Amazing Koraishutir Kochuri, Koraishutir kochuri is a Bengali delicacy, which is a deep-fried puffed poori/luchi stuffed with green peas paste and sautéed with ginger, green chili, and roasted cumin powder.

In West Bengal karaisuti is available only in the winter season, So this time we made it for breakfast especially on Sunday or other Holidays when to get time to enjoy slowly this delicacy with piping hot chole or ghughni. There are different types of kachuris are available as local street food e.g Hing-er kachuri, macher kachuri, daal kachuri which is known as daal puri also in many places ( Nadia district in WestBengal).

Other than in West Bengal, kachuris are also seen as street food, but these are not like pooris. These are a little bit crispy and hard. In Rajasthan, I used to take it occasionally as breakfast, which is a little hard and the daal is used as a stuffing. They served with hot delicious golden curry, which was served with samosa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/) also.
