Koraishutir Kochuri and Aloor Dum

Koraishutir Kochuri (Peas Kochuri) has always been our Winter favorite. Even though its now officially Spring, temperatures are still below 0F so I thought of treating us with this seasonal delicacy Koraishutir Kochuri and Aloor Dum. This is Peas stuffed deep fried flat bread, which is very simple to make using Frozen Green Peas. For the Aloor Dum, I prefer to use the small red potatoes which reminds me of the 'Notun Aloo'.

Ingredients: Koraishutir Kochuri
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour/Maida
  • Warm Water
  • 2 tsp Oil
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 1/2 inch Ginger
For the filling, grind the Peas, Ginger and the Fennel Seeds to a paste. In a pan, heat about 2tbsp oil and fry the paste till its cooked and dries up. 

To make the dough, sift the flour add salt and oil. Knead the dough using warm water to make a soft dough. Divide the dough into small balls and stuff with the filling. Roll them out.

Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the kochuri. Seal the balls well with the stuffing so that the paste does not come out when frying.

Ingredients: Aloor Dum
  • 10-12 small red potatoes
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 medium sized Tomato, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Cilantro, chopped

This niramish Bengali style Aloor Dum is very easy to make. Boil and peel the skin of the potatoes. Then marinate them in Mustard Oil, Lemon Juice, Salt and Turmeric Powder for about 30 minutes. In a pan, heat 2 tsp oil, Cumin Seeds and Bay Leaf. After few seconds add the Ginger Paste and the chopped Tomato, stir fry. Then add the Turmeric Powder, Roasted Cumin Powder, salt and Green Chilli as per taste, cook for some more time till you see the oil separating out. Then add the marinated potatoes, 1/2 cup water and give this a boil. Garnish with Roasted Cumin Powder and Cilantro. Serve this mouth watering dish with Koraishutir Kochuri / Hinger Kochuri.
