Method

Step 1


Sieve maida, add rawa and knead into a semi-soft dough by adding milk and water. Once the dough is ready, cover it with a damp cloth and set aside. For stuffing, roast grated dry coconut in a thick-bottomed kadai until it gives a nice aroma.

Step 2


Similarly, roast the poppy seeds and rawa separately until they give out a nice aroma. Mix the roasted dry coconut, poppy seeds, rawa, charoli, chopped raisins and powdered sugar together and set aside.

Step 3


Divide dough into twenty small portions and shape into balls. Roll out each ball into a circle, put a small portion of the prepared filling in middle, fold over to make a semi circle and thinly flute the edges to seal it well.

Step 4


Heat sufficient ghee in a kadai and deep fry the karanjis on medium heat in till they are crisp and a pleasant golden colour. Drain on absorbent paper and allow to cool completely.

Step 5


Store in airtight container.
