Bengali Matar Kachori / Koriashutir Kachori / Green peas Kachori

Coming to the day 3 of  Indian Bread basket theme I chose to share a simple stuffed poori aka kachori with green peas.
In West Bengal poori is called as kachori and it is not a crispy and flaky kachori served as a snack.This kachori is mostly served with aloor dum or some potato curry as the stuffing is mildly spicy.But I had mine with pickle and yogurt,it tasted so good.Try this simple kachori and enjoy,off to the recipe.........................
