7. Divide the filling and dough into 12 equal portions.
8. Using a little dry all purpose flour (maida), roll out one ball of maida-dough into a thin circle like we roll out a thin chapati.
9. Place one portion of filling in the centre of chapati.

10. Lift the edges of the chapati and fold them towards centre over the filling.
11. Seal the edges thoroughly. Make sure, there are no crevices while folding.

12. Again roll it out 2-3 times using a very little pressure (otherwise the filling will peep out) to get the shape and size of a kachori.
13. Repeat steps 8 to 12 to make 11 more kachoris.
14. Heat oil on high flame in a deep kadhai and then on sim flame deep fry the kachoris. Turn the kachori upside down after every 3-4 min. Each kachori takes about 15 min to get golden-brown and crisp.
