Haridwar Street Food features some of the popular food available on the streets of Haridwar. Kachoris are one of the most popular dishes served with aloo sazbi.
The kachoris have at least three to four different side dishes like the Aloo Jhol, Sukhi Aloo Subzi, Sitapal Subzi and in some places even the Dhaba Style Chana Masala served. The regular pooris are called kachoris in different parts of Northern India.
They are two types of kachoris, the Khasta Kachori that is crispy small or big ones that are served as snacks. The other type of kachoris is the regular pooris that are also stuffed.
I have made so many Urad Dal stuffed Pooris. I was double making sure that I wasn’t repeating myself. This version was delicious as well and a new one. So I was happy to make it.
When I decided on street food, I was also clear that I make some rotis or pooris so that if the chaat dishes were not liked, I have a fall back dish. Pooris can’t go wrong and so you see, I ended up frying pooris for all of my themes.
Planning on the dishes for the theme:
I make pooris twice a month, though another deep frying has come to a stop. Not for health reasons or anything, just that we don’t find the time. Hubby dear wants Pakoras when it rains. It hardly rains here. I also worry that having these pakodas will disturb the dinner. Else nobody wants dinner. Vadas are the ones we make often and it is mostly for lunch.
However, in the last two months, I have used more oil than I have ever in my entire cooking time. Fried more dishes than I can imagine. Not that I am going to stop. These Haridwar wali Kachori and likes will surely tempt me more.
Apart from the Haridwar Kachoris, I also made Chotu ki Pakode and Papdi Bada Dahi Chaat from Haridwar. Both the chaat was super addictive and my kids loved it. They just couldn’t get enough of Papdi Bada Dahi Chaat. I also made Thickened Milk in Kullars for the sweet taste.
For finalizing the dishes, I saw so many videos to finalize my dishes. I had to drop some at the last moment. For today, I will be sharing the Haridwar wali kachori.
