Indian cuisine is seriously vast and each region of India shares many droolworthy dishes. However i learned so many Regional dishes through blogging, seriously now i can dish out some delightful Regional dishes with an ease. However i love learning some traditional Regional dishes especially North Indian foods. Though been born and brought up in South India, my love for North Indian cuisine pulled me to replicate most of the traditional dishes at home. Hence my family can enjoy these delicious dishes which are quite unknown for us until i crossed them through this virtual world. One of my recent trial from Kolkata is this super duper fluffy kachori with lipsmacking potato curry. Yes my today’s post is one of the famous and well known breakfast dish from the city of Kolkata, and this dish is a weekend special dish. Kachori, we know that kachori is a deepfried dish with stuffing in it. But trust club kachori is completely a different one from the well known kachori liks khasta kachori etc.

Club Kachori Aloo ki Sabji

Club Kachori is bite sized mini puris prepared typically with maida, but however these kachoris can be prepared with wheat flour as well. And this kachori dough calls for coarsely grounded urad dal paste, chilly-ginger paste with asafoetida, hence these kachoris are extremely flavourful and dangerously addictive. To pair with this kachoris, a flavourful potato curry is served. And this curry calls for Panchporan, the popular Bengali spice mix, hence this potato curry tastes extremely delicious with wonderful flavors. I grabbed this Club Kachori from Jyoti’s blog as i was paired with her for this month’s Recipe Swap Challenge , a facebook group event i have been a part. Every month either we cook with Alphabets or Recipe swap, and vice versa. Since i like challenges, i couldnt stop myself to join this group.
