Matar Kachauri/Green Peas stuffed

This was another Kachauri that was made on Holi. The recipe is by my mother-in-law and the kachauris in the pic above is also made by her. It is another yummy recipe.You can use this stuffing for kachauris/stuffed puris or parathas. I also add some boiled potatoes to the peas stuffing and use it as stuffing for sandwiches.
