Kachori ( Crispy Deep Fried Snack With Savory Stuffing )
I am sharing this recipe for all my Bengali friends not residing in Kolkata. ‘ Khasta Kachori’ is one snack that every Bengali likes and misses when they are out of Kolkata. Infact not only Bengal, kachori it is a popular snack among Indians. In Bengal there is an additional liking for Kachori, may be because ‘ Kachori’ best symbolizes the taste of Bengal…..salty, spicy and a little sweet. Bengal and Bengalis are known for ‘ Telebhaja’ and ‘ adda’ (Evening time is the time for socializing and snack). Kachori with tea in small earthen cups is the most favoured snack. The outer crust is crispy and salty whereas the inner stuffing is spicy and a little sweet. A perfect balance of taste and therefore, you actually do not need any Chutney or dips. The best part is you can carry it along with you if you are travelling and enjoy your ‘ Kachori’ up to two days. Here goes the recipe of this awesome snack.
Another variation of this Kachori is 'Khasta Kachori' which is made with Urad Dal stuffing, I will soon be making Khasta Kachoris and will share the recipe soon.
