Baked Matar Kachori

Weekend breakfasts be like this👇😋


I am a big big fan of our desi kachoris aka english pies with different kind of fillings. I was in Rangilo Rajasthan for some good 5 years of my life and became a greater fan of these. This is a popular breakfast item in Rajasthan, served with piping hot “Kadhi,” These are generally deep fried in hot oil and they are so yum believe me you cant stop at one 😉 I make them often however; keep away from the fried ones and my husband also enjoys them baked better than fried😎


So, if you are wondering whether my baked ones have the same texture as the fried ones or not, just follow the recipe and you will find out yes, you want to definitely try it the healthier way😊 And of course I never want to make them with refined flour at home, so I have found my solution that gives them a perfect crispiness and texture. I use a mix of whole wheat flour, rice flour and wheat semolina to give them their awesome texture.😍


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup rice flour
  • 1/3 cup fine semolina
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 cups green peas
  • ½ tsp grated ginger
  • 1 green chili
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp Nigella seeds(Kalonji)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder


  • Mix together whole wheat flour, rice flour, semolina, salt and baking soda 

  • Add melted ghee in this and rub between your palms to attain the bread crumbs structure
  • Now start adding water little by little and knead soft and smooth dough. Apply little ghee on it and cover and let it rest for ½ hourIMG20180121133738
  • In a grinder jar add washed peas, green chili and ginger and pulse to get coarse mixture 

  • In a pan heat 1 tsp oil and add the bay leaf, nigella seeds and fennel seeds. Let them crackle and then add peas mixture 

  • Add salt, red chili powder, coriander powder and cook for a minute or two and remove from the flame
  • Now come back to the dough, divide it in equal small ballsIMG20180121150256
  • Take one dough ball and roll it and put 1 tbsp peas mixture and cover it with ends, form a ball again. Flatten it on your palms and put on a greased baking tray. Repeat with all the dough balls 

  • Brush some oil on these kachoris and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the outer layer seems crispy and doneIMG20180121152133

  1. Hi
    I m trying to bake kachories.
    I m trying with my recipe that i use to maje fried ones
    I hv few queries:
    1. They come out hard. Though when microwaved, they are nice.
    2. Do i need to knead the dough by hot or cold water?
    3. I m making mini round kachories
    4. What should be the baking time n temp


    1. Hi Manjula, because they are being baked and not fried so the dough has to be soft not hard, you can try increasing the fat by 1 tbsp to make them softer.
      Baking temp can be anywhere between 160-180 depending upon your oven. Time will be 20-25 minutes or even more till they get nice and golden.

      Brush some oil in between baking also.
