Making:

Step 1:

  • Combine refined flour and whole wheat flour with salt and sugar in a large bowl.

  • Mix well and cook for one to two minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool down to room temperature.

Step 3:

  • Divide the dough into equal portions and shape each portion into a ball.
  • Gently press around the edges with your thumb and flatten slightly.
  • Place a portion of the gram flour mixture in the centre, then gather the edges over the filling to enclose it completely.
  • Pinch the seams together to seal well and press with the heel of your hand and flatten into a thick kachori.
