Chandrakala



No festival is complete without dessert and our Holi special dessert is Chandrakala. This is a famous dish of North India. This dish is very similar to gujiya. This dessert is dipped in sugar syrup and has khoya / mawa filling in it which makes it a very filling dish & on this sweet note wishing all the members of Desitadka a very Happy Holi!

Ingredients

2 small bowl all purpose flour
1 cup refined oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup khoya
1 tablespoon green cardamom powder
1/2 bowl chopped dry fruits ( as you like)
1 tablespoon coconut powder
1 tablespoon ghee

Method

In a bowl take all purpose flour and add 4 to 5 tablespoons refined oil and mix properly, then add little water and knead firm dough. Then cover it with wet cloth.


  In a pan heat ½ tablespoon ghee on a low flame and add grated khoya to it, keep stirring it on low flame.

Cook the khoya till it begins to gather around itself. Then take it out in a bowl and keep it aside to cool down.

Once the khoya has cooled down, add ⅓ cup sugar, dry fruits and ½ tsp cardamom powder and mix properly to make sure there are no lumps. Now your stuffing is ready.


Take maida dough in your palms to form a ball.

Dust the rolling board lightly with some flour. Roll each ball with the rolling pin to a small circle.

For each chandrakala need two same sized circles of dough. You can do this by cutting a large flattened dough with a steel bowl.


Then with your fingertip, apply water all over the circumference edge.

Then place about 1 tbsp of the khoya filling on one side of the circle, keeping the edges empty Carefully.


Cover it with other circle of dough


Very gentle prepare or fold as design.
