Katori Chaat Savoury Bowls

Deep fried or baked katoris are made with flour and filled with your favorite toppng and topped with sweet and sour chutneys.

Katori means a bowl.  Fried katories are delicious.  Baked Katories are healthier and equally tasty.  The dough requirement for both the katories is different.  Baked katoris dough is made with milk or yoghurt to keep it soft compared to fried ones that only need water to make the dough.
