Mira Kapoor Is Beating Mid-Week Blues With This Iconic Kachori

Mira Kapoor who is slowly emerging as the internet’s sweetheart loves to flaunt her foodie side on her Instagram where she has more than 3 million followers. The 28-year-old, who married actor Shahid Kapoor in the year 2105, and moved from her hometown Delhi to Mumbai. Mira often misses Delhi food, especially, the greasy and indulgent fare the capital is renowned for, think chaat, tikkis and momos. On Wednesday morning however, she sated her cravings with the legendary Kachori from Rawat ki Kachori. She also thanked her friend, who perhaps got her the Kachori from Jaipur.  

Rawat Mishthan Bhandar is a renowned sweet and snacks shop in the pink city. It would not be an exaggeration to say that a trip to Jaipur is incomplete without a visit to this iconic shop for their delish Pyaaz Kachori. Now for the uninitiated, Kachori is a flaky, deep-fried pastry that features a range of fillings, from spicy lentils to sweet Mawa. For Pyaaz Kachori, soft dough is rolled out and stuffed with a savoury mix of onions and potatoes. It is then folded as a round patty and deep-fried in oil until crispy. Crispy, golden and crunchy on the outside, and soft and wholesome on the inside, pyaaz kachori is often served with sweet and tangy imli chutney or spicy green chutney. That’s right, since it is one of the heavier Kachoris, it is usually not served with potato curry.  

Pyaaz Kachori is indeed one of the gems of Rajasthani cuisine. Rajasthan is an arid state with limited vegetation, and most of the food is also very spicy as is evident by the street foods fare of the state.
