What is Urad Dal Kachori?

Kachori is a deep-fried snack that has a crisp and crumbly outer and absolutely delish stuffing. The stuffing could be prepared using dals, onions, potatoes, etc. In the case of Urad Dal ki Kachori, no points for guessing, the stuffings are prepared with urad dal and a number of spices. Being born and brought up in Ajmer, which is a district in Rajasthan, kachori is very close to my heart. In Ajmer Urad Dal ki Kachori is served with a tangy and spicy kadhi. It is a very interesting kadhi, as the same is prepared without any yogurt, which is generally used to make kadhi. It is further topped with some sweet and tangy tamarind chutney. At Ajmer, it is available at every nook and corner of the city. However the same can be prepared at home. Although it is not the easiest thing to make, but it is worth the effort, I promise. It takes a lot of time to fry the kachori, that’s what makes it perfectly crispy. Kachori can be served with the kadhi, as mentioned, or with chutneys of your choice or even with a cup of chai.

Ingredients for Urad Dal ki Kachori?

Urad Dal: Different dals can be used to make kachori. However, this is the recipe for urad dal kachori and therefore we have used urad dal for the filling. The dal needs to be soaked for an hour or so. Thereafter the same is boiled till soft. You can even skip boiling the dal. Many kachori vendors do not boil the dal. Further gram flour is also roasted and added. It adds an amazing nutty flavor to the kachori. And am craving these while writing about the same.

Spices: Fennel seeds, whole coriander seeds, dried fenugreek leaves, asafetida, coriander powder, red chili powder, dry mango powder are the spices that are used to flavor the kachoris.

Flour: All-purpose flour is used to make the outer crust of kachori. Oil is added to make the crust flaky. Little baking soda is also added and that makes it crumbly yet soft. The crust is flavored with carom seeds.

Oil: We use mustard oil for cooking and frying. However, you can use any oil, flavorless, preferably to fry the kachoris.urad dal kachori

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
