Raj Kachori Recipe
Raj Kachori Recipe is a popular street food recipe which is a big size kachori filled with mouth watering chutneys, and vegetables and curd. Serve Raj Kachori as an evening snack or at you next chaat party.
Raj Kachori is a mouth watering and spicy chat bowl. In Hindi, raj indicates royal and kachori indicates a big puri filled with a variety of delicious flavorings. All the flavorings can be chosen depending upon your taste palette. It reflects a beautiful garnishing. Basically this is a variety of chat where a lot of things (I have used potato, kala chana, moong as main fillings) are filled in a big poori along with green chutney and tamarind chutney. A single Raj Kachori will keep you full for a long time. Make this at your next get together and have all your guests drooling!

- 1 cup Gram flour (besan)

How to make Raj Kachori Recipe
To begin the preparation of Raj Kachori, combine gram flour, wheat flour, semolina & salt in a bowl well and using water knead a semi soft dough.
Divide the dough into equal portions depending on how big you want the kachoris to be. Roll out into little thick big puris using little wheat flour for rolling.
Heat oil in a pan at a high flame and then reduce the flame to low & deep-fry the puris till crispy and brown in colour. Remove on absorbent paper and keep aside.
Combine moong, kala chana, potato and salt in a bowl and mix well and keep aside.
At the time of serving, make a hole in the center of the kachori and fill it with the mixture of moong, kala chana, potato, salt and then a crushed papdi. Add both the chutneys.
Beat curd smoothly with little salt and sugar. Top the kachori with generous curd, both chutneys again and sprinkle sev over and garnish with more kala chana, moong and coriander leaves. Sprinkle the chaat masala and red chilli powders as needed.
