Pyaaz Ki Kachori

Pyaz ki kachori originated in Jodhpur and was soon popular throughout Rajasthan. This is a very popular morning breakfast in many households in Rajasthan. Steaming hot spicy Pyaz ki Kachori, in circular shape are available in maximum namkeen shops of the state. They are a perfect snack on a rainy day. These days you can find this favored Rajasthani snack dish in almost all the parts of North India. Now this Kachori has also become local snack dish of several regions of Indian Subcontinent.

They are a perfect snack on a rainy day .Well addition of kasuri Methi has enhanced the taste.

As a part of our #Interblogchallenge I had to try a recipe from my Co-Blogger Waagmi’s blog She is a wonderful person and has got a lovely collection of recipes on her blog. She is doting mom of a beautiful little princess, a Chemical  engineer and a home maker who also whips out amazing dishes. So many choices to choose from but I settled for Pyaaz ki Kachori. I have tweaked a little and here is my version.

Deep fry in hot oil until all the sides turn golden brown. Place them on paper Napkins to absorb excess oil . Serve Hot with fried green chillies and  Green  chutney / Tamarind chutney / Chilli Sauce.

  1. Pyaaz Kachori, now that is something I’ve not tried. Sounds really interesting, a kachori with just onion filling.If we can’t go to Jaipur to try them, then guess will have to make them at home.

  2. I am drooling over the pics Preethi. The last pic looks so good, just feeling like grabbing one of the screen. I want to try Pyaaz ki kachori since long, but still pending. I would try out this recipe.

  3. Drooling over the pics. Never tried making these kachori at home. Your description makes it sound so simple. Maybe after this lockdown is removed I can celebrate with them.
