For dough
1 cup plain flour (maida)

2 tablespoons melted ghee
a pinch of salt
ghee or oil for deep frying
For Filling
1/2 cup (750 grams) khoya (mava), grated

5 to 6 almonds, sliced
5 to 6 pistachios, sliced
1/2 teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder
1 tablespoon sultanas (kismis)
1 tablespoon sugar
a few saffron strands
For Sugar Syrup
1 cup (200 grams) sugar

1/2 cup water
a few saffron strands

For Dough
- Combine all the ingredients and knead into a firm dough using enough water.

- Knead well for approx. 5 to 7 minutes
- Allow the dough to rest under a damp muslin cloth for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
- Keep aside.

For Sugar Syrup
- Dissolve the sugar in ½ cup of water and boil the syrup for 4 to 5 minutes.

- Add the saffron and mix well.

- Mix up all the filling ingrediants

- Divide the dough,roll out each portion of the dough into round shape.
- Place a portion of the filling in the centre and fload it
- Turn the edges of the kachori
- Deep fry the kachoris in hot ghee/Oil over a slow flame till the kachoris turn golden brown in colour.
- These take a long time to fry as the crust is thick and needs to be cooked on the inside also.
- Drain on absorbent paper and allow the kachoris to cool slightly.
- Dip the kachoris in the hot syrup.
- Drain and keep aside.
- Serve hot or cold.

You can even serve these kachoris without dipping them in sugar syrup also.
