Refined flour (maida)
Dry coconut (khopra) grated
Poppy seeds (khuskhus/posto)
Sunflower seeds (charoli/chironji)
1 1/2 cups
Green cardamom powder
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.
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.
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.
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.
Store in airtight container.
