An Affair with Local Food and the Himalayas at Kausani

It was Diwali and a long weekend when I visited Kausani in Uttarakhand. It was a four days’ off, so I planned to head towards Himalayas.

Kachori with Karonda Sabzi

Please Your Palate! Homemade Kachoris Recipe | How to Make Kachori

I always preferred Pooris over Kachoris until now. While buying vegetables for last week, I got Karonda (or crane berries) too. Upon seeing Karonda, the first thought was to make its sabzi like how mom-used to make at home.

And then when she asked what will you make as the accompaniment, I plainly said paratha. She encouraged me to make Kachoris this time and have with Karonde ki sabzi. I followed her and the result was really really great. Continue reading “Please Your Palate! Homemade Kachoris Recipe | How to Make Kachori”
