Peyaz Kachori or Onion Kachori

Indian street food is very varied and very tasty. Every state has its own kind and style of street food or snacks and all are delectable and mouthwatering for sure. One of my favourite snack and street food combined is Kachori or stuffed Indian fried bread. One can just Gabe on its own or with some vegetable and if nothing else with chutneys. Chutneys or dips can be mint or coriander or garlic or tamarind. Any combination would do good with Kachori. One of my favourite is Peyaz or Onion Kachori which is a street food cum snack of Rajasthan and Gujarat states. I’ve made it earlier but felt to have it for dinner tonight.
