In the UT Spice series, we draw your attention to the evergreen road side snack ‘Kachori’, which is very famous in Rajasthan.
Tucked away in the walled city of Maldas Street, the Shrinath Kachori Shop has been operational since 1905. Amazing Kachori, Samosa, and Sweets are the proud heritage of this century old snack shop.
The store is well-known for its Kachori because of the unique spices used in its preparation. They fry the Kachori over low heat, which results in properly cooked Kachori, and they utilize spices from Upkar Store, which they regard as the best in the city.
The Kachori is served with different types of chutneys like Green chutney, Tamarind chutney and Yogurt.
A 7th-century Jain literature has reference to the Kachori, a puffy deep-fried pastry filled with lentils. Supa Shastra, a medieval cookbook, also has references to similar meals. The Kachori has its origin in the Hindi speaking belt of India.
