Dry fruits Kachori recipe | Kachori recipe

dry fruits kachori

Dry fruits kachori, is a deep fried snack, filled with dry fruits, nuts and  few aromatic Indian spices like cardamom and fennel seeds. I have made this post for Holi 2016, but somehow couldn't post it. Also i have drafted this to schedule it during my June vacation, but couldn't post as i had already array of recipes scheduled for that. So finally i thought i will post this for Rakshabandhan 2016, which falls on Aug 18th this month. I have posted moong dal | khasta kachori some time back. Check out my other raksha bandhan | rakhi  sweet recipes.
