Raj Kachori

Raj kachori is an appetizing dish that is filled with mashed potatoes, chutneys, yogurt and spices. This kachori chaat is also known as the “king of kachoris”. The word itself resembles its meaning. Raj stands for royalty and kachori refers to the crispy deep fried snack. The outer crispy shell is the base of this dish and is filled with different fillings that give the kachori chaat its flavor. To make a perfect raj kachori the most important thing to keep in mind is to maintain the right temperature of oil. This is to ensure that the kachori gets crispy without getting overcooked or undercooked.
