Pitthi Ki Kachori/ Urad Dal Kachori

Pitthi Kachoris are famous in North India especially in Uttarpradesh. I learnt making them from my mom. On every occasion we make these urad dal kachoris. These tastes best with Dum aloo .My mom makes these kachoris by hand , stretching the dough by flipping in hands called Hath se thapkna.But here I am using roller to roll these kachoris.

Ingredients for Dough

  1. 500 gm wheat flour
  2. Salt 1 tsp
  3. Water, to knead dough


  1. 1 cup white urad dal
  2. 1 tsp red chilli powder
  3. 1 tsp fennel powder
  4. 1 tsp coriander powder
  5. Hing a pinch
  6. 1 tsp garam masala
  7. Oil for deep fry


For the dough

Mix flour, Salt and water together to make a soft dough.  Put oil on top of it and Keep it for half an hour .

For the pitthi

  1. Wash and soak white urad dal in water and keep it overnight or soak for 4-6 hours.
  2. Now  coarsely grind the dal with least water and add red chili powder, fennel powder,Hing,coriander powder,garam masala.
  3. Mix well. Pitthi is ready.
  4. Can prepare pitthi one day before also and keep in freeze.
  5. Left over pitthi can be used for making vada .Some pitthi is left so I made vada with it.But add salt in left over pitthi.
  6. My kids likes to eat left over kachoris by heating them on tawa the next day with mango pickle or green chili masala.


  1. Oil hands and knead the dough again
  2. Make a lemon sized ball from the dough.
  3. Flatten it and add a small piece of pitthi in the center.
  4. Now enclose the pitthi around the dough.In the same way stuffed all the balls.
  5. Roll and deep fry. Pitthi Kachori  is ready to eat.
