Lilva Kachori is a traditional kachori made with a stuffing of fresh toovar and green peas perked up with ginger and green chillies.

A dash of lemon adds to the chatpata taste of the stuffing, making this a really exciting snack to bite into on a cold winter’s day.

The flaky and crisp kachori with an excitingly spicy stuffing, is a must-try recipe in the winter months, when fresh toovar is available in the markets.
