For the Stuffing :
Heat oil in a pan. Add Bengal Gram flour to it. Roast it for 15 minutes or till it releases aroma. Transfer it into a bowl. Then dry roast the mava, till it starts releasing oil. Now take cloves in a pan and dry roast it. Add the peanuts and roast it for 5 minutes along with the cloves. Allow it to cool. After cooling grind it into powder.

Mix roasted Bengal gram flour, roasted mava and Peanut powder into a bowl. Now add Cinnamon powder, Coriander-Cumin owder, Citric acid, Turmeric powder, Red chilly powder, Black pepper powder, powdered Sugar and Salt to it. Mix well and add a tspn of Water. Set it aside for using it in Kachori.

To make Kachori :
Make a small lemon sized ball from the dough and roll it in into circular shaped roti . Place a tbspn of stuffing over it. Now gather all the sides of the circle and join it. Keep the gathered side downwards and roll the opposite side with the help of rolling pin. Heat oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot, reduce the flame to medium. Deep fry the Kachori till it is golden in colour. Let it cool and transfer it into an Air-tight container. Serve it with tomato ketchup / Green Chutney & Sweet Chutney.

Notes :

Alternatively, at the time of serving prick it and pour some Curds, Green Chutney, Sweet Chutney and Sev over it.
The Kachori kept in an Air-tight container lasts for 4-5 days.
