Lilva Bread Roll Recipe

I love experimenting and I will never get enough of it. If you have tried Lilva kachori, you know what I am talking about and those who haven’t, guys where in the world are you. It is the specialty of Gujarat, and a must-have when you visit the state.

Today’s recipe is a more modern twist to the traditional kachori. I have for you Lilva Bread rolls. The filling is the same, just a new outer layer, which is bread. The freshly grounded Tuvar dal is cooked with spices and dry fruits to makes for a lip-smacking stuffing.

The crispy deep fried outer layer of bread provides a nice crunch and then comes fresh and exotic flavors from the Tuvar dal stuffing. This recipe you should definitely try.
