pyaz ki(onion)kachoriI was fortunate enough to travel and rejoice whole of Jaipur “the ravishing muddy pink beauty”!the food I explored over there are really never to be forgotten with full dominance of ghee spread over a wide array of dishes.Ghevar available over there in a shop called “LMB” is a dessert that is haunting my mind till date and even brought home some loads of it and relished every bit!Unfortunately I missed out something important it was rawat’s famous “pyaz ki kachori”and “mava kachori” and no worry I could cover it next time when I visit but I can’t really guess when I will visit so till then Iam quite edgy to try it out at comfort of my home itself.pyaz ki(onion)kachoriFor these kachori’s the recipe says that even dips are not so needed! the hot and crisp kachori’s are hard to stop you will want more they are so mesmerizing with a hot cup of tea.I served it with tamarind and green chutney and it tasted super tasty with tamarind chutney than the green chutney.Its not so needed that you must prick the kachories with fork before frying to prevent it from puffing up and always for frying these kachories keep the flame low so that it is cooked through nicely and crisp.Add only ghee for mixing the dough not oil if you want the exact onion kachori as it would be and the taste what to say? is simply adorable.The size of the kachories can be made according to ones own need can be made smaller or bigger.Come lets explore the enchanting taste of pyaz ki kachori.

Notes

While making kachori's you can prick the dough with fork before dropping it into the oil so that it does not puff up. I have not pricked as I liked it to be puffed. while making the stuffing you can add sugar to it will be a great combination of mixed flavours. You can rest the dough even for 30 minutes. Always cook in medium flame not high. After closing the kachori's with stuffing you can either roll with a rolling pin or press simply with hands to make it flat. When adding ghee to make dough it can be little warm. For seasoning also you can very well use ghee instead of oil. Adding besan is optional its only for binding purpose. Adding black cumin is also optional.
