Baked pyaaz ki kachoris

One of the yummiest snack I have eaten is pyaaz ki kachoris in Jaipur! Mouthwatering and flavorful and the name is enough to drool over.the only issue was it being fried and so tried my hand at baking them. I worked on the pastry dough and got it as close to the taste of fried stuff such that my son was wondering what's with me ! That's how bad my reputation is with frying. So here is this mouthwatering dish!
4 large onions chopped
3/4 chopped gr chillies
4/5 cloves crushed garlic
1 tbsp chopped ginger
2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp hing 
4 tbsp besan
1 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp dhaniya powder
1/2 tsp haldi
2 tsp amchur
1 tsp crushed saunf
Chopped dhaniya

For pastry
1 cup maida
1/2 cup atta
1/2cup suji
1/4 cup oil
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp sour curd thick

In a bowl mix all the flour and salt and add oil and butter . Rub well to get it like bread crumb consistency.
Add curd and cold water to make it into a tight dough.
Keep this aside for good 3/4 hours and then in the fridge for 30 mins.
Meanwhile heat oil and add hing and mustard.
Add garlic , ginger and green chillies.
Add onions and sauté till trancelucent. Today I added spring onion also. 
Add besan and sauté .

Make balls with dough and roll into small circles.
Put generous helping of masala.
Cover well and roll to 4 inch rounds.

When done, brush with butter again.
Serve hit with green chutney and tamarind chutney.i served with amchur chutney.
Amchur chutney.... 2 tsp amchur with salt, kala namak, bhuna jeera , chilli powder and dhaniya powder , mix with water and boil. Add sugar and reduce. Chutney is ready!
