  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.
