Mawa Kachoris are Indian hand pies filled with mawa/khoya (evaporated milk solids) and mixed nuts, deep fried and dipped in sugar syrup.
These Kachoris or pies are a specialty from the State of Rajasthan. Mawa Kachoris are almost like Gujjiyas that are khoya filled pastries(shaped like empanadas).The only difference between Kachoris and Gujiyas is that the covering or pastry of gujiya is quite thin as compared to Kachoris. I first had Mawa Kachoris when I had visited Rajasthan for the first time. I did my college from there and I love Rajasthani food. Check out one of my favourite Rajasthani dish.. Rajasthani Pyaz Ki Kachori.This makes me realize that I have to do quite a few posts for my favorite Rajasthani dishes🙂.
What are Kachoris..
Kachoris are Indian pastries filled with savoury or sweet fillings. Dal Ki Kachori served with Aloo ki Subzi are popular in Uttar Pradesh and Pyaz Ki Kachori served with Kadhi in Rajasthan. Mawa kachoris are quite popular in Rajasthan. Kachoris are one of the popular breakfast item in Rajasthan Early morning you can see people lining outside the sweet shops for freshly made kachoris . These are deep-fried and heavy on stomach, so people consume these in morning or for evening snack. These also made on festivals like Holi and Diwali or any other special occasions.
Mawa used for these can be store-bought or homemade. For the recipe of Homemade Khoya/Mawa click here. I used ghee for making dough with flour, you can use any oil of your choice. Kachori dough made with ghee gives more flakier kachori and with oil gives crispy kachori.
Let’s see how I made these yummy and exotic Mawa Kachoris.
