Mawa Kachori - मावा कचोरी (Stuffed and deep fried bread with reduced milk solids and nuts)
Ingredients For Kachori Dough Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 2 cups Salt - as per taste Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 3 tbsps Warm water - for mixing the dough Oil - for deep frying For Stuffing Mawa/Khoa (Reduced Milk Solids) - 1.5 cups Mixed Nuts - 3/4 cup (I used a mix of almonds, pistachio and cashews) Sugar - 1/2 cup Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 2 tbsps For Sugar Syrup Sugar - 2 cups Water - 1 cup For Garnishing Nuts and few strands of saffron Preparation
Mix everything except water for kachori dough in a bowl.
Now add warm water little by little and make it into a soft dough.
Cover it with a lid or kitchen towel and let it stand for 30-60 minuets before using it.
Meanwhile, take a non-stick pan and heat 2 tbsps ghee and fry mawa till nice golden brown.
Add sugar and nuts to it, mix well and your stuffing is ready.
In a separate pan, add sugar and water and let it form a syrup of one-string consistency.
Now, heat oil for frying kachoris.
Take a plum sized ball from the dough and roll it into a flat circle.
Keep the stuffing in the middle of the circle and roll it from all sides into a ball and pinch the excess dough off.
Flatten it slightly into a disc shape with your palm.
Now, fry these to golden brown and drain on a paper towel.
After excess oil is removed, dip them into sugar syrup for few seconds and take them out into a serving plate.
Sprinkle some nuts and saffron and it is ready to be served.
Serving Serve it warm for either dessert or just a snack :)
