There is nothing as refreshing as sitting down with a cup of tea or coffee and a plateful of piping hot snacks at the end of a long day. And, India as a country has abundant options when it comes to street food and snacks that can be made at home with a variety of ingredients, based on availability or preference. Among the plethora of dishes available, kachoris are quite a popular pick in various parts of India. The dish, which traces its origin to the northern parts of the country, is made with a range of stuffings, lentils, flour and several types of spices.
Here is a list of 5 kachori recipes from North India
1. Lachedar Kachori
This recipe can best be described as a riot of flavours. And, what makes this kachori special is that it is made crunchier and crispier with layers. You can stuff it with a range of ingredients such as potatoes, besan, and a bunch of Indian spices. See the recipe here.
2. Moth Kachori
This kachori is a speciality from Delhi. The snack is made with moth beans, tomatoes, onion, and spices. You can pair it with green chutney or tamarind chutney, chopped onion, and some chaat masala on the top. Check the recipe here.
3. Mawa Kachori
