Dry Fruit Kachori - Jamnagar Special

Dry Fruit Kachori is a round kachori stuffed  with dry ingredients like ganthia, papadi along with nuts and spices . This kachori is a speciality of Jamnagar , which is a famous city of Gujrat.

This is the second week of the September Mega Marathon and we are working on Sweets and Snacks all through September.This week we are supposed to pick one state and make snacks from it.I naturally picked Gujarat as it is the hub of Farsaans. This week I  shall be posting  Snacks with shelf life . These snacks are also called Jar Snacks and are popular as Diwali Snacks.

I remember my mil making a variety of snacks before Diwali. She would try each and every possible snack, but over the years we have stopped making these traditional snacks as no one wants to indulge into fried foods. I will not say that we have stopped , but yes we consume them once in a while.

I wanted to document these traditional snacks , so I picked the theme of Diwali Snacks. I knew my family would not eat all of these , so I decided to work over two to three days . I then packed some for my daughter , her parcel was sent to Chennai. I also wanted to carry these for our BM #100 Meet, so packed 4-5 varieties . I am glad everyone enjoyed them. I did not tell anyone about these snacks then , except for Valli . I am glad she approved them ,and besides I could see that by the end of the meet the boxes I carried were empty. Could I ask for more ?

Coming back to the Dry Fruit Kachori one has the choice to either roast besan with spices or use store-bought ganthia papadi , The spices are added and then everything is pulsed in a mixer. Dry fruits are added ,and we have the stuffing ready . I somehow forgot and pulsed all the nuts too but yet the kachori tasted super . The crust is same as that of any other Kachori .

The Kachori is slightly sweet , slightly spicy , but a treat . it is a specialty of the city of Jamnagar and this is one kachori which is exported to many countries. So here you are with the recipe , which is my post for Day 1 of Week 2 under Sweets and Snacks.
