Chicken Kachori

Kachoris are a special iftar treat, readily available from street vendors everywhere, along with samosas and pakoray. Unfortunately, they are deep-fried in oil and can be quite heavy on the stomach. Try this light recipe for homemade kachoris and mint chutney so you can enjoy them without feeling too guilty.


  • For the dough:
  • Flour 1 cup
  • Oil/butter 1 tbsp
  • Yogurt 1 tbsp
  • Salt 1 tsp
  • Soda ½ tsp
  • Water
  • For the filling:
  • Minced/boneless chicken 250 gms
  • Soya sauce 2 tbsp
  • Ginger-garlic paste 1 tbsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the dip:
  • Mint leave 1 hand full
  • Green chillies 2
  • Water 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Yogurt 1 tbsp


  1. For the dough
  2. • Sift the flour and soda thoroughly in a bowl.
  3. • Add the oil and yogurt to the bowl and mix.
  4. • Add the water one tablespoon at a time and keep mixing until there is no dry flour left and dough is formed. You will require 2 to 3 tbsp of water for this.
  5. • Knead the dough for 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. • Allow the dough to rest for about 2 hours.
  7. For the filling
  8. • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan.
  9. • Once the oil has reached medium heat, add the ginger-garlic paste.
  10. • Add the chicken and seasoning and cook until chicken is tender and set aside.
  11. For the dip
  12. • Process all the ingredients, except the yogurt, in a blender until they become a fine paste.
  13. • Add the mixture to yogurt to make the green dip.
  14. Let’s Get Rolling!
  15. • Divide the dough into 4-6 portions.
  16. • Take each portion, make it into a ball and then roll it thin with a rolling pin.
  17. • Add the chicken filling to the centre of each portion, leaving some space on its outer ring.
  18. • Take all ends of the dough and join them in the centre (over the top of the filling) for each portion. Repeat this method for the remaining dough.
  19. • Deep fry the kachoris until the sides turn golden-brown.
  20. • Serve the kachoris with mint and green chilli dip.
