Now divide the dough into 20 equal parts.
Roll each portion into a smooth ball.
With a rolling pin on a slightly oiled surface, roll out each ball into a thick patty about 5 cm (2-inches) wide.
Place 1 tablespoon of cooled filling in the centre of each one, pinching the edges of the dough back over to completely enclose the filling.
Pinch the excess dough together and press it back into the centre of the patty.
Flatten slightly; then with a rolling pin roll out seam side down (carefully avoiding puncturing the pastry) into a 2 inch wide kachori.
Now put all the rolled Kachoris onto the Oven tray and bake them for 25 minutes or until Kachoris turn golden.

Once your all Kachoris are baked, Brush them with butter or oil, if you wish to.
Serve them with Chutney or Chole on breakfast or evening tea.
