Instructions for kachori:
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, vegetable oil, salt, and water, and knead the mixture until it forms a smooth dough. Cover the dough and set it aside to rest for 15-20 minutes.
- In a small pan, dry roast the cumin seeds, fennel seeds, and coriander seeds until fragrant. Grind the roasted spices into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle.
- Add the spice powder to the dough along with the red chili powder, turmeric powder, dried mango powder, and garam masala. Knead the dough again to incorporate the spices evenly.
- Divide the dough into small equal-sized balls. Roll each ball into a flat disc with a rolling pin. The disc should be thin enough to see through it.
- Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully slide the rolled kachori into the oil and fry it until it puffs up and turns golden brown. Flip the kachori and fry the other side as well. Remove the kachori from the oil and drain it on a paper towel.
