    Ingredients

    • 3 cups maida 
    • 1 cups semolina/rava,
    • 4 teaspoon vanspati/pure ghee,
    • oil
    • 100gram cornflour
    • pinch of salt
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • water to knead dough
    • 250gram Poppy seeds
    • 500gram Jaggery 
    • half cup milk

    Nutritional Info

    Crispy Karanjis ready! Cool them completely before storing them in an air tight container. Will keep well for weeks. In filling mixture we also use mixed nuts.

    Method

    • 1In medium bowl, whisk the  ghee well, then add the maida, semolina, baking powder, a pinch of salt as per your taste and add water to dough (not warm water). Mix all these ingredients well and knead the dough.
    • 2The dough shouldn't be too soft or too dry.
    • 3Cover this with a plastic wrap and leave it aside for 2 hours.
    • 4Meanwhile, dry roast the Poppy seeds in a pan on a low flame for around 10 minutes till it turns golden. Remove from heat and mix jaggery and a little ghee into this and set it aside.
    • 5Now take a small piece of the dough and roll it out into a circle (like roti).
    • 6Then mix corn flour with oil and make smooth paste.This paste spread onto rolled roti with our thumb.
    • 7Into this roti, add around 1 and 1/2 tsp of poppy-jaggery (or as much as you can fit in!) filling in the center.
    • 7Fold the roti and press the ends of the roti with your fingertips. Use a little milk to make the ends stick.
    • 8Its crucial to avoid the stuffing from coming out during frying.
    • 9Repeat with the rest of the dough.
    • 10Drop 1 or as many you can in your fryer. Make sure the temperature of the oil doesn't drop by adding too many of the karanjis. This will make the karanji soggy and it won't stay crispy.
    • 11When the karaji slightly puffs up Ladle in some hot oil on the surface of the karanji now and then just like you would do for making poori.
    • 12Turn it over for the other side to cook.
    • 13The karanji is done when it is golden brown. 
    • 14Remove, place on absorbent paper and serve.
