Kachori is not the same as samosa—they both may have savoury stuffing and deep fried to a perfect crunchiness, but the former is a 100% made in India product. It is believed it is the Marwari traders of Rajasthan who first created the kachori. As they travelled and settled across India in search of better opportunities, kachori too travelled with them. Wherever this ancient Indian business community settled there is a kachori variation that takes on local colours. And they are all delicious!
