Kakuri is extremely popular Pukhtoon tea time snack.I remember when I was kid my mother used to make dozens of them and I absolutely loved them.Years later, when I learned how to cook, my mother taught me how to make them and I am so good at making them. I remember whenever our relatives came from abroad they make sure that they took dozens of kakuris with them.The best thing about the recipe is that is so simple and yet so amazing. I am sure you’ll love the recipe.
