  1. To make the cover, heat oil. Take maida in a bowl, mix rawa and salt. Stir well. Then add hot oil and mix the entire mixture till it is a little crumbly.
  2. Add warm milk and knead into a dough. The consistency should be softer than a poori but harder than a Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for ½ hour.
  3. To make the filling, dry roast rawa and poppy seeds separately. Take in a plate.
  4. Then dry roast coconut and mix with rawa and poppy seeds. Add powdered sugar, cardamom and raisins and mix well.

Make all karanjis together. Make sure to store them in a damp cloth or they will stick to the plate. Then deep fry till they are slightly golden. Karanjis are ready to be gobbled down!
