Khasta Kachori

This aloo kachori recipe is inspired from famous Pakistani snack Keema kchori, where khasta kachori is filled with keema masala. To make it vegetarian I made spicy potato masala to stuff these kachoris. It’s a super delicious traditional snack and if you are looking for more authentic snacks you may also like:

You can also stuff these kachoris with spicy dal masala, onion and green pea’s masala or any other stuffing of your choice. These kachoris are folded in a very different way and they are layered with slurry made with ghee and all-purpose flour, which makes these kachoris crisp and flaky.


It is very important here that these aloo kachoris should be cooked at very low heat like samosas. That’s what make them khasta or crisp. I love to serve these delicious aloo khasta kachori with spicy green chutney but you can also serve them with tomato ketchup.
