Aloo Pyaz Kachori are popular Indian snack with crispy and flaky texture on the outside and spicy, delightful and flavorful filling on the inside. The Kachoris are so tasty that they can be served alone. But since I am planning to make many other items I decided to make and serve it with sweet banana chutney and spicy chutney.

  8. Gather the edges and seal by pressing on them. Then, gently press the edges with your fingers or a rolling pin and roll to form a kachori about 4 inches in diameter.
