Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. For Outer Layer
  2. All purpose flour (Maida) – 1 cup 
  3. Ghee – 1  & 3/4 tbsp 
  4. Salt – 1/4 tsp 
  5. For the stuffing
  6. Khoya – 3/4 cup   
  7. Chopped nuts – 3 tbsp
  8. Powdered sugar – 2 tbsp 
  9. Cardamom – 1 
  10. Saffron – Few strands 
  11. Milk – 1 tbsp
  12. For sugar syrup
  13. Sugar – 1 cup
  14.  Water – 1/2 cup 
  15. Cardamom – 1 
  16. Rose water – 1 tsp (optional) 


  1. First lets prepare dough by mixing maida, salt and ghee first. Add water little by little to make dough. Keep aside for 30 mins .
  2. Meanwhile you can prepare the stuffing. Soak the saffron in luke warm water. Then heat a pan and add the mawa with low flame cook it for 1 minute, bring it out and let it cool, after cooling add powder sugar and chopped dry fruits. Mix it thoroughly..
  3. Prepare sugar syrup by boiling in medium flame. 1/2 string consistency is enough for this sweet. That is if you check a drop between your fingers, a string forms and breaks quickly.
  4. It will be sticky, not watery. Add cardamom, saffron water after switching off the stove.
  5. Knead the dough after 30 mins again to make it smooth and soft without any cracks. Roll and divide into equal sized balls. I made 10 equal sized balls.
  6. Roll gently to thick puris. Arrange in a broad plate.To make chandrakala, stuff 2 tsp of the khoya in a side of the puri we rolled, fold and cover with the other half.
  7. Seal and start folding from one end. Pinch, fold and seal continuously as shown in the picture and video and seal the finishing end too.
  8. To make suryakala, place the filling in the middle of the puri, cover it with another puri.
  9. Press the sides to seal and fold as we did for chandrakala.
  10. Repeat to finish. Heat oil/ ghee/ vanaspati and fry few per batch. After dropping in oil, cook in medium flame. Keep turning to ensure even browning.
  11. Drain from oil and let it soak for 5- 10 mins. Arrange in a tray/ box.
  12. Happy cooking..:blush::blush:
