‘Diwali/Deepavali’, which is one of the biggest Indian festivals is around the corner and most of us have started with the festive cleaning and decoration. Diwali or Deepavali is one of the biggest Indian festivals and it’s the one where food is the main focus! Hence, this Diwali, I wanted to share with you’ll this very special and extremely delicious recipe of ‘Masala Kaddu Kachori (Indian Pumpkin Flatbread)‘Sweets/desserts are definitely the center of attraction during this entire festival and people go all out to either make or buy all kinds of sweets. There’s no end to the varieties and you can definitely see all kind of traditional or fusion (more popular now) recipes. But that doesn’t mean that rest of the food is going to be regular since it’s also the time of family gatherings (especially long distance or out of station family members visiting their homes), the food becomes extra special. If you visit any Indian home during this festival season, you’ll also see varieties of their fav veg/non-veg dishes along with poori/kachori are the favorite sides.The recipe of the ‘Masala Kaddu Kachori’ is very easy and it’s actually easier than the traditional kachori recipe (which is stuffed and then fried). But this version is absolutely easy and needs no special technique. Once your dough is ready (which can be done in the food processor too), all you have to do is make circular discs and fry them. I’ve infact further simplified the process by using a ‘Tortilla Maker/Roti Maker’ and made the kachori’s in it, so you don’t even need to roll the dough or anything. Also, another great reason for using the roti maker is that all your kachori’s are the same shape 🙂 In the picture above, I’m serving them along with a simple ‘potato and peas mix’, however, this goes extremely well with any curry or meat dishes too.
So, this Diwali, treat your loved ones to these mouthwatering kachoris.
