Why my Kachori is not crispy? Tips for a perfect kachori
Fry all the 'kachoris' at the lowest flame possible.When you start frying check by putting a small amount of dough in oil.It should sizzle and come up slowly.If you cook them on a high flame, they will swell up like a 'poori'.
We have used less plain flour or Maida in this recipe to make it healthier. You can also make it with plain flour.
However it is still fried.Hence, be a little mindful of this.I love them and find it so hard to resist.I can hardly wait to finish the whole jar.
