Cornmeal / Makai ka Aata        2 Cups
Wheat flour                             2 cup
Salt                                        to taste
Potatoes (Boiled and Mashed) 3

water to make the dough


Mix the flours, salt, 1 pinch asafetida to form a soft dough. you will need less water as cornmeal can be wet very easy. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes. divide the dough into 6-8 round balls/peda depends on the size of Kachori you want to make.
Mix green chili, amchoor, salt and 1 pinch asafetida to mashed potatoes and make it a dough consistency.
Put the kadhai on flame and let the oil get heat-up. As the oil start to get warm turn the flame to slow.

Now start to pat it in between your fingers first
Move it to your palms and keep patting until you reach the desired size.

This is how big I like my Kachori to be.

I've made two of them to show you the fried Kachoris.
