You might have tried different ones from the market mostly filled with aaloo or pyaaz, what if we fill something special in these kachoris too? That’s why I made these Mava Kachori.

It’s hard to keep away from these delicious kachoris filled with khoya and dry fruits. So here is Mava Kachori Recipe for you. Enjoy the festivities.
