Cover with plastic wrap and keep aside for half an hour.
Combine the remaining ingredients except oil in a mixing bowl and knead with hands until well blended.
Divide into 18 portions and keep aside.
Divide the dough equally into 18 portions. Shape each portion into a patty. Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap and set aside.
Flatten each patty into a 2 1/2 inch. or 6.5 cm round.
Place one portion of filling in the center of the dough, then bring the sides of the dough over the filling to enclose completely.
Pinch the seams together until thoroughly sealed. Cover with a plastic wrap or a moist towel. Keep aside.
Shape and stuff the remaining patties.
Heat the oil in a wok till it starts smoking. Slip in a few patties (seam-side down) at a time.
Fry until pale golden in colour and until they sound hollow when tapped. The crust should be delicately blistered and crisp. Drain excess oil. Hot Aloo Kachori is ready to serve.
