Take the dough and knead it for a minute. Divide the dough in twelve equal parts.
Take one part of the dough and with your fingers flatten the edges and make into 3-inch circle. Leaving center little thicker than edges.
Mold the dough into a cup and place about 1-1/2 teaspoons of filling in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap the dal filling. Proceed to make all 12 balls.
Let the filled ball sit for three to four minutes before rolling.
Set the filled ball on a flat surface with the seam facing up. Roll it pressing with your palm evenly, in about three inches in diameter.
Heat the oil in frying pan over medium heat frying pan should have about one inch of oil. To check if oil is ready put a little piece of dough in the oil. Dough should sizzle and come up very slow.
Fry them on medium-low heat. After they start to puff, slowly turn them over. Fry until golden-brown on both sides. This should take about five minutes. If the kachoris are fried on high heat, they will get soft and will not be crispy.
