Khasta Kachori Recipe:
Khasta Kachori (Crispy puffed bread) stuffed with a spicy lentil mixture, a great teatime snack!!
Kachoris have taken Mr. H’s fancy ever since I made them recently; remember the Matar Pyaz ki Kachoris (read about it here). I can’t really blame him though, for they were indeed sinfully delicious. The khasta kachoris are not just great as breads for the main course to go with curries or chutneys, but they do make for wonderful snacks with a decent shelf life depending on the stuffing that you choose. Across the state of Bihar they stuff the kachori with a spicy sattu (roasted Bengal gram flour) mixture and it’s delicious. Although I decided to make small bite size kachoris stuffed with split black gram for my tea time snacking, and I got a spicy lentil stuffed crispy Khasta Kachoris at the end, total bliss.
