lilva kachori is the famous snack made during the winter months which is extremely famous in the city of Ahmedabad and Valsad in Gujarat.

Gujarati fresh tuvar dana 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.

Knead into a semi-soft dough using enough water. Keep aside.

Add the coarsely blended toovar and green pea mixture, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add all remaining ingredients and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside to cool slightly. Then shape the kachori. Divide the stuffing and dough into 12 equal portions. Roll out a portion of the dough into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle without using any flour for rolling. Place one portion of the stuffing in the centre. Bring together all the sides, seal it tightly, pinching in the center. Shape more kachoris and deep fry 3 at a time on a slow flame for 8 minutes. Serve immediately with green garlic chutney.
