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.

Method
For the kachoris

  7. Seal the ends completely using a little water (as shown in the image 3).
  8. Twist the edges of the kachori (as shown in the image 4).
  9. Repeat for the remaining dough circles and filling to make 11 more kachoris.
  10. 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.
  11. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside to cool.

For the sugar syrup

  1. 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.
