A very famous breakfast dish of North India.
Crispy spicy delicious puri usually served with hing jeera aloo sabji or curry. But these hot fluffy puri can be also serve with tea or only pickle. Puri taste spicy and absolutely delicious so you don’t need anything with it. Not only breakfast but you can also enjoy it as a teatime snack.
Its very easy to make. If you have soaked dal or lentil, you can make it in a jiffy. Just mix everything and make a dough and fry. Simple isn’t it 😊

If you don’t have udad dal or you don’t like then you can also make it with moong dal or yellow lentil. Follow the same process. Puri also remain crispy when cool so its perfect for your tiffin or lunch box. Make aloo or potato curry to serve with puri but you can also serve it with any pickle or achar or serve as a snack with tea or coffee. This Kachori can be also made with stuffing. Stuffing with udad dal can be made and stuff in whole wheat flour dough like this hinger kochuri.
