Our Review Factors

What are we expecting? We are looking for kachoris that crisp well, have a flavorful stuffing with a pleasant freshness of peas. 

Haldiram’s Minute Khana Mutter Kachori was reviewed on the following parameter: 

1. Taste 

The stuffing of these kachoris was the main focus point here. To evaluate the taste we looked at the following points: 

  • Spice levels
  • The freshness of green peas
  • Balance of seasoning
  • Overall taste

2. Texture 

We gauged the texture at two stages: 

  • Outer crust: Is the outer crust crispy and flaky? Or does it feel soft and doughy?
  • Inside stuffing: Are the green peas completely mashed or partially?

We also checked if the kachoris were oily or not.

How We Made Them?

As per the pack, these kachoris do not require any thawing before cooking. Heat these in the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. You can also heat them in an air fryer but make sure that the temperature is controlled otherwise there are chances that it might get burnt. 

To heat the meethi chutney, transfer in a container and place it in the microwave for around 10 to 15 seconds.

Our Verdict 

Cooking Experience 

Cooking these kachoris was a hassle-free process no doubt! Our observation here is that the kachoris could have been cooked for a few more minutes in the oven after initial heating. This would have helped achieve a crispier exterior.

Texture 

The texture of the kachoris could have been better! When we cooked them as per the instructions, the kachoris turned out to be slightly soggy and oily. Also, at several points, we felt that the kachori had a doughy texture. 

That being said, the proportion of the filling to the outer casing was up to the mark. 

Taste 

The main highlight of these kachoris is the filling! The filling has a delightful blend of fresh green peas, and a flavorful and balanced seasoning of spices like coriander, cumin, and mango powder. The spice level was moderate, and the salt level was on point. Additionally, the peas were cooked to perfection and had absolutely no raw taste/texture.

The accompanying meethi chutney with the pack was delicious too! It is sweet as expected and has a homestyle touch.
