Hey Foodies,

Today’s recipe hails from Rajasthan, very popular snack which can be made in various variations. We are talking about Kachori commonly known as Khasta Kachauri. Kachori’s are deep fried crispy and crunchy pastry balls stuffed with a savoury filling of moong dal, besan and a mild sweet and spicy dry masala. This recipe is unique in its own way, the outer covering is not made using maida rather its made with suji or semolina, which is a much healthier option. The most important part of the recipe is to ensure that the kachoris turn crispy from outside and super soft and moist from inside. Let’s get to it.

Hey Foodies,

Deepawali or Diwali, the brightest festival of the year is here and this time around, we’ve curated two recipes for you to stir up, serve & impress your guests!

d2015_purichaatir2

The best part? Both of these recipes are damn easy to make and are as scrumptious to the palate.. Why delay? Let’s get started.

Puri Chaat, a distance cousin of Raj Kachori. Easier to make, easier to impress your guests. I mean literally who can say no to a chaat. I can’t. Ofcourse, I’m a chatora. 😛

A crisp puri with bubbling hot vatana, ice cold sweet yogurt, tangy tamarind chutney, zingy coriander chutney, spices, sev, onions is this.

That’s easy ain’t it? Make it & Enjoy 🙂

This recipe was inspired by my relative Manisha Bhabhi, her mom makes a slight different version of this. She calls it Bhar ke Puri and she recently started blogging at www.foodnspoons.com. She shared her mom’s recipe for Bhar ke Puri with me years back, and since then I’ve been making it every now and then with different variations and it comes out great all the time 🙂 Check out her version here.

That’s all for today, one more diwali special recipe to come very soon! 🙂

Your Favorite right? Lets make puris for Pani puri.. Which is the most difficult task.. Getting thin, crisp and delicious puris.. Gets even difficult when the street stall people say “Its NOT EASY”

[widget id=”text-5″]
Puri for Pani Puri Recipe | Indian Street Food
Serves: 30-35 Puris
 
Ingredients
  • Maida/Plain Flour - ¼ Cup
  • Suji/Semolina - ¼ Cup
  • Baking Soda - 1 Pinch
  • Salt - To Taste
  • Oil - To Fry
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, add in the maida, suji, salt and baking soda. Mix and make a dough using sufficient water. Make a soft dough.
  2. Once the dough is ready, cover and let it rest for 30 mins.
  3. Heat oil to very high. Just before smoky point.
  4. Make 3 portions out of it and then roll it thin. Roll it thinner than a chapati but not much thin otherwise it wont puff! Cut it using a cookie cutter/glass.
  5. Now drop these in very hot oil. Lower the flame and fry until golden. See Notes**
  6. Take the puris out from the oil and put them in plate and let them cool and then enjoyyyyy!!
Notes
For Frying: Make sure the oil is very hot. If its not hot enough it'll not get crisp and it'll be thicker and soft from one side and thinner from another.
Main keys in making these puri's are the oil should be hot, puri should be rolled well.

A visual treat for you! 🙂
