Ingredients For Khova:


  • 1 litre Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Almonds – pistachios -cashew (sliced)(optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder


  • Heat the milk in a heavy bottomed pan.Bring it to boil.Once it starts boiling, then lower the heat – something in the middle of low-med.
  • Stir it once every 10 min to make sure that the milk does not stick to the bottom.
  • Add the Cardamom Powder and sugar.The milk is about an hour and half or so, slowly starts reducing in volume and turns into sandalwood yellow colour.
  • After 1 hours or so, it thickens and this is a point when it becomes mandatory that attention is given and stirring is must on a continuous basis. Otherwise it will stick to the bottom.At final stage it will be like thick paste.Remove it from the stove ,Transfer it into a serving bowl and cool it for sometime.Khova is ready for stuffing.
          You can mix the grated Pistachio/almonds in Khova for crunchy taste.

Ingredients For Chandrakala:


  • 2 cups Maida/plain flour
  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 2-3 tbsp water/as needed to knead the flour
  • a pinch Salt
  • Oil/Ghee for deep frying
  • 1 cup sugar (for syrup)
  • Few Kesar /pistachios
  • Khoya for stuffing


  • Add the maida flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.Add ghee and start kneading the dough.Add water little by little and knead them again till the dough become soft.Cover and keep aside.
  • Roll each dough pieces like small poories.Place stuffing in the center of the poori and close it.
  • Fold in the edges.Repeat this step  with remaining dough.
  • Prepare the sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water into thick consistence.Fry all chandrakala one by one in a ghee/oil at moderate temperature, till it turns golden.
  • Take it out and soak the chandrakala immediately in prepared sugar syrup for 10 minutes and then arrange it in a tray.
