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
