Chaats

Kachori Chaat

8:42 AM

I made kachori with a chaat. Last month my fellow blogger friends posted variety of Kachori's and this tempted me to make this dish. I am very fond of chaat and moreover I have tasted beautiful kachori’s in Mumbai. Last year when i was in Mysore, my native place, I had tasted some kachori's which were not that tasty compared to the ones i had in Mumbai. So tried this at home and it came out nice…not bad. Recipe is given below just try it out.
