Recipe Notes

The baked katoris can be readied and kept for some time as they do not turn soggy too much. Whereas, if the katoris are deep-fried, they turn soggy soon after adding all the stuffings and toppings and need to be readied and served immediately. Additional stuffings include sprouted moong and/or boiled chickpeas, depending on the region.
