stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add cayenne, roasted cumin
powder & continue to cook for 5 minutes or until all the moisture has
evaporated. Remove from the heat & allow to cool. Form into balls

Prepare the luchi dough as directed in Luchi recipe. Divide the
dough into 12 balls. Press a thumb into the centre of each dough
ball to form a cup. Fill this cup with a portion of the pea mixture.
Reform into a ball so that the pea mixture is enclosed inside.
Flatten the balls & roll very carefully so that the filling remains

hot & fry until the kochuris are light brown, crisp & puffed. Drain
& serve immediately.
