Likewise, a kachori can be had plain, on the go, or served elaborately, flattened and topped with options like green chutney, sweet chutney, garlic chutney, chilli powder, jeera powder, chaat masala, curds, sev, chopped tomatoesonions, black salt and lots of coriander. Lots have Kachori with just fresh lemon juice. All said and done, it goes best with the traditional Khajur Imli ni Chutney , so don’t forget to include it in your serving plans! You may also choose to make handy, smaller sized kachoris like Mag Dal Ni Kachori, and serve a few different varieties along with suitable Accompaniments , as a mouthwatering kachori platter.

While kachori is traditionally an energy-giving, deep-fried food, which is sure to warm the heart on the coldest monsoon day, health-conscious folks may also try baking their kachoris or using a dough of whole wheat flour to make them.

As we said earlier, kachoris are versatile, lending themselves to several types of fillings, varied cooking methods, and exciting serving options. So, wear your creative hats, and get started making crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth kachoris that delight the taste buds!

Delicious to the core, that’s what this Matar ki Kachori is! You would never have, really, tasted a kachori with such a flavourful filling. Crushed green peas are pepped up with a rather snazzy assortment of spices, of which nigella seeds really stands out, with its prominent flavour. You will also enjoy the soft texture of the filling, which contradicts the crusty, melt-in-the-mouth covering! 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. Take care to deep-fry these kachoris on a very slow flame to ensure even cooking and also to make the crust nice and flaky.

These kachoris probably originated in Jodhpur but are today popular throughout Rajasthan. Very few households actually prepare these crisp, flaky deep-fried kachoris stuffed with an onion filling. Steaming hot Pyaaz ki Kachoris or Aloo Pyaaz ki Kachoris are sold at most 'namkeen' shops in Rajasthan. Like all kachoris, they are eaten with a sweet and spicy tamarind chutney. You can prepare these kachoris ahead in time and re-heat them in an oven just before serving. They are perfect for an afternoon snack on a rainy day.
Jodhpur is famous for its Mawa Kachoris. Rich dry fruit and mawa (khoya) stuffed crisp deep- fried kachoris are coated in sugar syrup. These kachoris are a welcome treat at any time of the day. These sweet kachoris are often called "gujjias" and are a "must have" for the Holi festival.
