About Bread Kachori


Bread Kachori is a delightful snack originating from the streets of India, known for its crispy texture and flavorful filling. Unlike traditional kachoris made with a flour-based dough, this recipe uses bread slices as a convenient alternative. The filling, typically made with a combination of dal (lentils) and potatoes, is seasoned with aromatic spices and cooked to perfection. The stuffed bread slices are then shaped into kachoris, deep-fried until golden brown, and served piping hot. Bread Kachori is a popular street food snack enjoyed across the country for its simplicity and delicious taste.



Cooking Tips


  • Bread Selection: Use fresh, soft bread slices for best results. Stale bread may not hold its shape well during frying.
  • Stuffing Consistency: Ensure that the stuffing mixture is not too dry or too wet. It should be moist enough to hold together but not soggy.
  • Frying Temperature: Maintain the oil temperature at medium-high while frying to achieve a crispy exterior without burning the kachoris.
  • Sealing the Edges: Use water to seal the edges of the stuffed bread slices securely before frying to prevent the filling from spilling out.
