Dry Fruit Karji Kai (Nevri)

Ingredients for the dough

  • 2 cups of Maida or all purpose flour,
  • a pinch of Salt,
  • 3 teaspoons of chiroti rawa,
  • A teaspoon of hot oil

Knead all the above ingredients to get consistency of chapathi dough.

Ingredients for the filling inside

  • Half cup of grated and dry roasted dried coconut(Khobre in konkani or Kobbari in kannada)
  • some chopped dry fruits(Badam,cashew, pista,raisins)
  • 2 teaspoon of white till or bili yellu
  • 100 grams of grated jaggery

Mix all the above ingredients well and keep them aside.


  • Step1 : Take a small portion of the dough. Roll it . Keep the dry fruit filling in the middle of the rooled dough.
  • Step2 : Fold the rolled dough to form an envelop and twist the edges(See Picture). Be careful not to leave any gap , else the filling will spill out. Repeat this step to make some more Karji kai.
  • Step3 : Heat oil or ghee for frying .Do not heat oil too much else the food will get burnt without cooking from within.
  • Step4 : Carefully put the filled karji kai in the hot oil(Be careful!!). Fry them in medium heat until they are golden brown.
  • Step5 : Place them on a tissue paper to remove extra oil.

Serve during festivities or special occasions or any time you wish.
