These kachoris probably originated in Jodhpur but are today popular throughout Rajasthan. Very few households actually prepare these crisp, flaky deep-fried kachoris stuffed with an onion filling.

Steaming hot Pyaaz ki Kachoris or Aloo Pyaaz ki Kachoris are sold at most 'namkeen' shops in Rajasthan. Like all kachoris, they are eaten with a sweet and spicy tamarind chutney.

You can prepare these kachoris ahead in time and re-heat them in an oven just before serving. They are perfect for an afternoon snack on a rainy day.

I tried this recipe in an appe patra & using wheat flour & ghee & with a similar filling it turned just as good. I think the calorie value must be much less. Please send your comments. Thanks
