Serves : 4
  • For the crust. Maida- 1cup

  • Ghee- 2tbsp

  • Salt- 1/4tsp

  • Luke warm water- 1/4cup

  • For the stuffing. Mawa- 3/4cup

  • Green cardamom powder- 1/2tsp

  • Mixed nuts- 1/2cup (almond, cashew, pistachio, walnut and raisins)

  • Sugar- 3tbsp

  • Oil to deep fry- 1 1/2cup

  • For sugar syrup. Sugar- 1cup

  • Water- 1/2cup

  • Green cardamom powder- 1/8tsp

  • Saffron- 1/4tsp


  • If mawa is not available, then don't worry. Lets do it at home. Instant mawa is very easy to prepare at home with milk powder. For that we need
  • Amul Fresh Cream- 1/2cup Milk Powder- 1 cup (I have used Amul Spray) Ghee- 1tbsp
  • In a nonstick pan add milk powder, cream and ghee and mix properly without lumps. Then keep this on gas and cook up to thick. Stire this continuously to prevent from burning. Slowly this will form a soft dough. This will be called as instant mawa.
  • In a mixing bowl add maida, salt and ghee. Rub ghee properly so that a crumbly texture will come. Now add luke warm water to knead a soft dough. Adding water should be in batches. Cover and rest it for 20 mins.
  • Next start doing the sugar syrup. In a sauce pan add sugar and water. Let it boil and sugar to melt in.  Then slow the flame and cook up to one thread consistency.  
  • In a non stick pan add mawa (instant mawa also) then add sugar, dry fruits and green cardamom powder. Cook this mixture up to dry. First it will be runny then slowly it will dry up and make soft dough.
  •  Bring out the resting dough and knead it again for a min. make equal size balls.
  • Then bring out the stuffing and make equal number of balls as maida balls.
  • Roll the maida balls to a 2inch circle and place a stuffing ball on it. Now gather all the edges of the circle and seal the stuffing without giving any gap. now stuff all kachoris and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in pan for deep frying. keep the flame on medium.
  • Now take one kachori and flat with palm gently, so that it won't break. Prepare all the kachoris
  • slide kachoris in the hot oil one by one. Don't over crowd the oil with lots of kachoris. Cook these in medium flame up to golden brown. If the kachoris are fried on high flame, these will soggy not crispy
  • While serving the kachoris drizzle hot sugar syrup on them and garnish with sliced pistachios and almonds. These can be served without sugar coating. I personally love mawa kachoris without sugar coating.
