Mawa Karanjis

Dry fruits n Mawa karanji:

For the filling-

  • 1cup mixed chopped roasted nuts like almonds, cashew nuts , pumpkin seeds, walnuts and raisins.
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar(I have used brown sugar)
  • 2 table spoons suji rava roasted.
  • Cardamom powder-1/4 spn
  • Khus khus-1/2 spn
  • Dates-5 to 6 chopped.
  • Ghee-1 table spoon.
  • Mawa-about 1/2 cup.
  • (You may use ready made from the market or prepare mawas as given below)

Knead 1 cup of milk powder with a little ghee and 2 table spoons of milk to a soft dough and then cover it in a wet cloth and steam it fo about 5 mins without the weight in a pressure cooker) 

Once its cool crumble it and keep aside.

In a kadai add 1 table spoonful ghee and add khus khus, add the crumbled mawa n on low flame keep stiring till the mawa changes to pinkish colour. Add the chopped nuts, raisins ,roasted rava and chopped dates n mix well. Add the powdered sugar and also the cardamom powder. Mix well.

For the outer covering:

  • 1.5 cups of wheat flour
  • 1 table spoon roasted suji
  • Cold water1 1 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 table spoons ghee.

In a pan add salt, wheat flour ,suji and ghee and mix with light hands. Slowly add cold water little by little and knead into a firm dough. Cover with a wet cloth and keep aside. After about 15 mins divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a small puri. Thinner the better. Put a small spoon of the filling and seal the edges lightly with the fingers and twist them with the fingers to seal the filling and prevent them from opening while frying.

Now heat oil to fry the karanjis and once the oil is hot fry the karanjis to golden brown.
