Raj kachori recipe | राज कचौरी घर में कैसे बनाएं

Raj Kachori
Raj Kachori
Raj Kachori is also called as the king of all kachoris or a king-sized kachori simply because it is the royal, rich and splendid dish. It is a popular chaat snack from North India. This chaat recipe is simple but this recipe covers both preparations of kachori and assembling of chaat ingredients so it takes time.
The texture of Raj Kachori is more like a puri with a crispy surface the traditional texture of puri does not help to fill stuffing on kachori so it would be more crispy and more puff than puri.
I have added boiled potato and sprouted green gram but you can add boiled chickpea, crushed paapdi or boondi. Making raj kachori is quite a time taken so you can also prepare the stuffing a day earlier like make sweet chutney, green chutney or boiled aloo, chickpea or other dal. You can also prepare kachori one day earlier and keep it in an airtight container and it crispness last long for 1-2 days.

Banana chips are dried slices of bananas. They can be fried in oil and spices and have a salty or spicy taste or sugar-coated or jaggery coated.Banana chips are commonly found in India, Philippines and Indonesia.

But I like fried banana chips. Fried banana chips are usually produced from under-ripe banana slices deep fried in sunflower oil or coconut oil.These chips are dry like potato chips and can be salted, spiced. In India, usually made in the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu and commonly known as "nenthra-kaaya oopperi" or "upperi" in Kerala.
Sweet jaggery-banana chips are called "sharkara upperi" and it is an integral part of the traditional meal called sadya served during the weedings or in the festival such as Onam.

So, I am sharing the recipe of banana wafer or chips.

 Raw banana- 3 -4 (big size)
 Turmeric-1 Tsp
 Salt- according to taste
 Black pepper powder 1-1/2 Tsp
 Red chilli powder (optional)
 Oil for frying
 Ice cold water

How to make:
  1. Peel the bananas and immediately soak in ice cold water for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. After 15 to 20 minutes, slice the raw banana with slicer and soak in the same ice cold water for 30 minutes.
  3. After 30  minutes pat dry banana slice with clean kitchen towel till all extra water removed.
  4. Now mix turmeric and salt in banana slices.
