Bhel kachori

Bhel kachori is a very famous street food of the city of Vadodara, Gujarat. It is made with deep-fried kachori stuffed with bhel and topped with chaat chutney. It tastes spicy, tangy, and loved by all kinds of age groups. I share three types of chaat chutney in this recipe, with street-style bhel and few no-fail tips to make perfect kachori on the first attempt. Do try this!

The key to making tasty bhel kachori at home are:
  • For kachori dough, the proportion of maida and rava(fine) should be equal. Rava helps to make crispy kachori for a longer time.
  • Roll kachori into slightly thin and medium in size.
  • The flame has to be high when the kachori’s are dropped and then continue to fry on medium flame.
  • Fry kachori till it becomes golden brown from both sides.
