Koraishutir Kochuri / Green peas Kachori / Hare Matar ki Kachori

Star Rating WIDGET PACK

Koraishuti means green peas and Koraishutir Kochuri is not just a food, it is an emotion for a Bengali. According to me, winter is incomplete without 'green peas'. Am I right ?? We Bengalis love to eat 'koraishutir kochuri' during winter. In my home nobody brings this kochuri from shops. My mom always makes this at home with 'aloo dom' , 'payesh' and everybody loves it. Nowadays we don't need to wait till winter for green peas because now almost everywhere frozen peas are available. I very much enjoy the combination of asafoetida (hing), ginger and green peas. This kochuri goes very well with 'kashmiri dum aloo'. Try this in your kitchen and share some of your winter stories with me.
