NOTE

  1. Ice cold water is used for dough to knead as it makes the kachori crisp and flaky. You can use warm water too but ice cold water gives more better results.
  2. The dough should be made really tough else they will not become crispy and also will drink oil.
  3. The oil should not be too hot while dropping kachoris in it.It will not be crisp if the oil is too hot.It should be such that when you drop some dough it should come up slowly, if the dough comes up too fast the oil is too hot.
  4. To make outer shell crisp and cook evenly, deep fry it over low flame.Deep frying it over medium or high flame will make small bubbles on its outer surface leaving inner surface uncooked.
  5. Instead of Sev or thick mixture you can use roasted gramflour but the taste varies.
  6. If you don't like sweetish taste, cut powder sugar but don't remove sweet chutney.
  7. With the same stuffing you can do samosa too.
  8. Instead of deep frying , you can bake them too .Grease them a bit, place on parchment sheet and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 mins at 180 c. Flip and bake for 3-5 min .
