Koraishuti Kochuri is a classic Bengali stuffed deep fried bread recipe. It is stuffed with mildly spiced green peas, rolled and then deep fried in hot oil. It puffs up and makes light crispy on the outside. Served with aloo dum, Koraishuti Kochuri could be a fancy weekend breakfast or lunch.
We try to avoid deep-fried food as much as possible but on weekends, I get the craving for these deep-fried flaky luchi (Deep Fried Mini Breads) . I am pretty sure most Bengalis like me would consider it their guilty pleasure too. Soft, flaky and almost melting in your mouth, when paired with dishes like Ghugni or Kosha Mangsho, it is a comforting and hearty treat. We could even call it a close cousin of North Indian Poori, which of course, pairs best with Aalu Tamatar Sabzi.
