Kordoi - Sweet and Savory ( Assamesse Snacks For ICC)

This is my second month in  ICC - Indian Cooking Challenge  and once again I get to prepare a very rare and authentic dish. - Kordois .

 Last month we had make Hyderabadi sweet Meethay-Ghoday  and this month it is an Assamesse dish which is prepared in both sweet and savory variety. The original recipe was taken from a very nice blog by sunita  and she has many such unique assamesse as well as baked dishes.

 Once again it makes us realize how vast our country is with so many cultures and traditions and off course innumerable and unimaginable delicacies. Thanks Srivalli  for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this lovely group where we get to prepare such rare Indian dishes.

Sweet as well as savory Kordoi is a dish made with very basic ingredients and so you don't need any special preparation . For savory kordoi  you can omit spinach  if you don't have it and go for just coriander leaves and onions or even just onions. The taste remains almost same. We loved the savory version so much that I made it two more times since that was the demand from my family.







Ingredients for Sweet Kordoi :

1 cup ................wheat flour
1/2 tsp................Kalonji
1 tbsp................oil
1 cup.................sugar
1/2 cup..............water
1/2 tsp................cardamom powder
oil for deep frying







Method :

Mix the flour , jeera and oil well with fingers.
Make a stiff dough with very little warm water and keep it aside for 10 minutes.
In the mean while make a sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water till very sticky.
Add cardamom powder to the syrup and keep it ready.
Now make small balls of the dough about 12 to 14 and roll thin puris.
Give long cuts to the puris without tearing it and keeping the puri intact.
Now roll the puri and press the ends.
Bend the roll a little in the middle.
Refer to the picture on how to give cuts and roll.






Deep fry these kordois in hot oil and immerse them in warm sugar syrup for 5 mintues.
Then take them out and let the syrup dry on them.
These sweet crispy kordois taste just yumm and you can go on eating them non - stop.




Ingredients for Savory Kordoi :

1 cup.................wheat flour
1 small ...............onion very finely chopped
2 tbsp..............spinach leaves very finely chopped
1 tbsp..............coriander leaves very finely chopped
1 tsp................chilly powder
1/2 tsp.............kalonji
1 tbsp..............oil
1/2 tsp..............salt
oil for deep frying







Method :

Mix all the ingredients except oil for frying well with your fingers.
Knead a very stiff dough with very little water as the dough tends to become soft due to onions.
Immediately roll out small puris and proceed in the same way as for the sweet version.
Deep fry them till crisp and golden in hot oil.
