A visit to Ashoknagar will remain incomplete until you have the delicious samosa and kachori from some popular shops.
The samosa is made with all-purpose flour locally known as maida shell stuffed with some filling, generally a mixture of mashed boiled potato, onions, green peas, lentils, spices and green chili. The entire pastry is then deep-fried in vegetable oil or rarely ghee to a golden brown color. It is served hot and is often eaten with fresh green chutney, such as mint, coriander, or tamarind.
Kachori is supposed to have originated in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is usually a round flattened ball made of fine flour filled with a stuffing of baked mixture of yellow moong dal or Urad Dal (crushed and washed horse beans), besan (crushed and washed gram flour), black pepper, red chili powder, salt and other spices. It is then deep-fried in vegetable oil to a golden brown color and served hot and is often eaten with fresh green chutney, such as mint, coriander, or tamarind.
