First make khoya by evaporating the milk on slow flame with stirring on regular intervals till it turn into solids

Note:- I used 3/4th litre milk by which i could make approx 10 kachoris(small size). You can make according to your requirement.

For filling mix all ingredients properly and make small balls


Preparation of kachori

Take 2 cup maida in bowl,add 3-4 spoon of ghee to it and make dough using water

It should not be too tight or too loose.Cover it with wet muslin cloth and keep it aside for half an hour

Now take small portion ,make ball and spread it with fingers in circular motion

Put filling ball in it and close the mouth.Gently press the ball & tap it with side of palm and spread it evenly

Make it of size you like.Heat Ghee in kadai, put kachoris & let them fry on slow flame till they turn good golden colour and completely fried.


Make sugar syrup by mixing 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of water, take a boil & stir till sugar melts. We dont need too thick chasni.Add food colour( optional), saffron strands & elaichi powder in sugar syrup.


Dipping of kachoris in sugar syrupMake a small hole in center of kachoris & by spoon pour 3-4 spoons of hot sugar in kachori

Then dip the kachori for a minute in  hot sugar syrup and serve it.Left kachoris can be stored in fridge in an air container  without dipping in sugar syrup .
