Kachori, the taste of the land of royals


Kachoris were popular in old Delhi and Kota, Rajasthan, even before samosas gained popularity after the partition of India.[2] Banarasidas, the author of biographical Ardhakathanaka, has mentioned buying Kachoris in Agra in 1613.[3] For seven months, he bought a ser of Kachoris daily, and owed twenty rupees.[4]

Kachori is supposed to have originated in Uttar Pradesh or Rajasthan.[citation needed] In these states it is usually a round flattened ball made of fine flour filled with a stuffing of baked mixture of yellow moong dal or Urad Dal (crushed and washed horse beans), besan (crushed and washed gram flour), black pepper, red chili powder, salt and other spices.

When it comes to Rajasthan, nothing can beat their exotic and rich variety of food. The well famed Bikaneri Kachori is not only popular amongst the locals but is well known for enticing food lovers from all over the world.

This crunchy treat stuffed with hot gravy and spicy chutneys will certainly keep you longing for more once you step out of Bikaner.
