Serve these kachoris for Breakfast or Evening Tea Snacks with Green Cutney and Khajur Imli Ki Chutney . When served Dahiwali Aloo ki Subzi the combo makes a satisfying meal.
Crispy, flaky shells with a delectably spicy filling of cooked and seasoned yellow moong dal, every bite of these kachoris is worth a fortune! these can be eaten as a snack, or along with your meals. This dish gets a protein boost due to the moong-based filling, making it a great choice for kids.
