Bhutte Ki Kachori
Most of us love rains. Some of us hate the monsoon season. Well, when you ask me as to what I have to say about the rains, all I know is that I get to eat garma garam Pakodas and Chai. 😛
I’m a typical food lover who just finds a reason to eat something or the other. 😀
Monsoon is the season when we get to eat hot Bhuttas or Corn Kernels and there are so many things we can make out of it.
Bhutta Kachories happens to be one of my all time favorite. Everybody has their own recipe and style of making those kachories. I’m sharing with you how my mom makes it and now how I’ve started making those and I’m pretty sure, you all will like the same. You can present them in typical Indian style or make it look happening by various kinds of presentations.
