Kachoris from Mansukh's

Pradeep my colleague got a bag of Kachoris from Mysore for me. He reads my blog regularly and knows I love food and like to share my thoughts about it. We have many times discussed about our favorites. I have been complaining about the quailty and authenticity of chats in Blr. My experience tells me it is just not chat, the Mumbai and Delhi Chats that I know. Everything smells of sambhar here. Pradeep challenged me that Mansukh's products will change my views.

Yes he was right. These Khasta Kachoris are the best I have tasted this side of the south. He had got couple of other things like ganthia and rosgullas that were very authentic. So the next time I visit Mysore I am going to raid this shop. Else Pradeep is quite dependable.

The filling is spiced right and is made from moong dal/ urid dal and the cover is khasta or crisp and layered. A perfect Kachori. There is another Kachori that I am fond of and that I make at home the recipe is by a famous Indian cook will post it some time. Till then keep guessing and salivating.


  1. Now, even I crave for some kachories :) I agree that the taste of chat differs from North to South, but I feel that the chats in hyderabad tasty pretty OK.

  10. Anjali, you know Modern in Santa Cruz (W) - at least that's what I think it is called - near the WR station? They sell khandvi, dhokla and all kinds of delicious Gujju treats. If you are ever in that area, try their kachoris. I am sure you will love them!


Thank You for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
