MATAR KACHORI

My experiments with food and cooking started after seeing that my DH always came back hungry when we were eating out.He is always concerned about what are we eating,its quality and the amount of fat in it.So I started experimenting and trying recipes at home.
I tasted this Kachori at my friends place .As we decided to drop in suddenly to surprise them she had to delve into her freezer.She came out with Matar Kachori.I loved it!!!!So I decided to try it at home .Kept on experimenting and finally came up with this.Hope you like it.
