Kachori is a popular snack from North India that has managed to find fans across the country now. The fried, puff pastry is known to have its origins from Rajasthan, but there are many other variants of the snacks that hail from other parts of India too. Kachoris can be both savoury and sweet. It is an omnipresent snack across majority of Halwai shops. It is often paired with aloo curry, chutney and chopped onions. Kachoris are mostly made with maida, but if you are trying to avoid maida for some reasons, you can always switch to alternative flours, say semolina or suji. Suji also known as rava is known to add a delicious crispness to all dishes.
