Popular in the North of India, Kachori, also known as Kachodi or Kachauri is an evergreen deep-fried snack usually made of processed flour or Maida. It is known for its crunchy brown texture and its spicy and delicious inner filling. It a snack that is widely loved in not only India but Pakistan and Nepal too.
Kachori can be easily spotted at festivals, functions, and events in India. Kachori pair well with various other Chaat items like Sev, Curd, Mint Chutney and Samosa. Kachori is often served with Imli Chutney and Mint Chutney and can be quite filling as a snack.
In this Kachori recipe, we will use AASHIRVAAD Atta in place of processed flour. While Maida is traditionally used in such recipes, it is processed flour that does not contain a high amount of nutritional content. This is why, we will use a reliable whole wheat atta, AASHIRVAAD Atta in this recipe. Check out AASHIRVAAD 1 kg atta price here.
