Our Review Factors
Taste, texture, and the nutrition quotient were our focus factors.
While the texture would be different, are the flavors similar to that of a regular kachori from a local halwai shop?
The flavors of a kachori are divided as the outer crust and the filling. The crust may be plain or flavored with seeds like cumin or carom. But its the flavors of the filling that hold more significance. We were looking for a balance of savory, sweet, and spicy flavors.
Fried or baked, kachoris are meant to be crisp and crunchy. How was the crust of Snackible Baked Kachori like? Was the filling grainy or pasty?
3. Nutrition Quotient
Under this parameter, we gauged the quality of ingredients and the nutrition values. What is the source of fat used? Is this truly refined flour-free? What about the calories? Are the macronutrients in balance?

Snackible Baked Kachori – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
There are six Snackible Baked Kachori in one 90-gram pack. Priced at Rs 75/-, these have a shelf life of six months.
The main ingredients are whole wheat flour, gram flour, moong dal, jaggery, vegetable oil, vegetable ghee, green chilli, white sesame seeds, while chilli powder, garam masala, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, hing, black salt, pumpkin seeds, watermelon seeds, and sunflower seeds.
Thumbs up! This ingredient list is fairly clean and nutrient-dense with the exception of vegetable oil. This contains no additives, preservatives, refined flour, which is impressive.
Coming to the caloric values, one Kachori (approximately 15 grams) offers 71.6 Kcal with 1.73 grams of protein, 7.8 grams of carbohydrates, and 3.6 grams of fat. These values can be easily accommodated in an average 2000 Kcal diet. Ideally a snack should be under 150-100 calories and this falls under that.
Aroma + Appearance
The kachoris are round with a flattened bottom. These have a light brown, golden appearance with a deep, caramel-colored stuffing. No rancid aromas, these seem fresh and natural.
Taste + Texture
Do you know how ghee (or any fat source for that matter) turns in colder regions? It hardens, develops a sticky feel. This was how the surface of the kachori was. The outer cover was hard, but not as crisp as that of a fried kachori. The filling had a variety of textures like chewiness from dal, a soft crunch from the seeds.
This was quite good in terms of taste. The outer cover tasted fresh and the filling, made with dal, seeds, and Indian masale worked well. The balance of flavors was appreciable and the ratio of filling to kachori gets a thumbs up too. The filling was a mix of salty and sweet flavors with a hint of green chilli heat coming through.
- We loved the sweet, chilli and salty taste.
- The infusion of dal, masalas and seeds combines well.
- The ingredients list is clean. Thumbs up!
- It has a wonderful sweetness.
- The outer cover of these kachoris is hard. Unlike the deep-fried kachoris which are crisp on the outside.
