Kachoris are a delight for the diner – nutritious and tasty at the same time. But the one black spot that usually mars the goodness of kachoris is that they are deep-fried. Here is a non-fried version of kachori that you’re sure to enjoy as much as the original. You can now indulge in the protein boost of moong dal without worrying about the calories of a deep-fried snack!
