Jodhpur is famous for its Mava Kachoris. Rich dry fruit and mava (khoya) stuffed crisp deep- fried kachoris are coated in sugar syrup. These kachoris are a welcome treat at any time of the day. These sweet kachoris are often called "gujjias" and are a "must have" for the holi festival.
- Combine all the ingredients and knead into a firm dough using enough water.
- Cover the dough with a lid and keep aside for 10 minutes.
- Divide the filling into 12 equal portions.
- Roll out a portion of the dough into a 100 mm. (4") diameter circle without using any flour for rolling.
- Place a portion of the filling in the centre (as shown in image 1).
- Fold it over to make a semi-circle (as shown in image 2).
- Seal the ends completely using a little water (as shown in the image 3).
- Twist the edges of the kachori (as shown in the image 4).
- Repeat for the remaining dough circles and filling to make 11 more kachoris.
- Heat the ghee in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry, a few kachoris at a time on a slow flame till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
- Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside to cool.
- Combine the sugar and 1 cup of water in a deep non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 6 to 8 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
