Reasons to go to Kota

1The crunchy kachoris of Kota
The crunchy kachoris of Kota

In the mood for a flavour that you won’t forget? Try the kachoris of Kota. Basically fried, crispy discs of refined wheat flour stuffed with a spicy filling of moong lentils, this one is straight up a flavour bomb! Other variants include- a filling of spicy potato and onion mixture and a filling of sweet mawa(sweet milk based powdered dessert ingredient). Savoured best with a spicy green chutney and a sweet chutney, this just might make you want to relocate to Rajasthan, permanently.

HolidayIQ traveller Sandeep says, “If you come to Kota then go and have the Daal Kachori of Ratan Namkeen, Near Nayapura ( Kota Bus Stand)."
