In a bowl, add maida, semolina, soda, ghee, salt and mix well with your hands.
Sprinkle water little by little and knead it to a stiff dough.
Donot add water at one stretch. The dough might become watery. So always add water little by little.
Rest the dough for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, take small portions of dough and make small balls.
I got 8 balls from the above measurements.
Take one ball at a time, dust it with maida and roll it out like we make chappathi.
Fold it into half and it appears like a semi circle.Fold it into another half again and it appears like a triangle.
Insert a clove at the end as shown in the pic and video. This will prevent the sweet from opening while frying it.
Prick it with fork and it helps in frying easily and the dish will get cooked properly.
Heat the oil. Drop a small ball to check if the oil is hot.
If it raises to the top, then the oil is ready to fry these pastries.
Drop the Chandraharas one by one and into the oil and fry it in medium flame.
Donot fry in high flame as it will result in uncooked product.
Frying these will take some time so do it patiently without any hurry.
Once it is golden brown and looks crispy, remove it from the oil and drain it on a tissue paper.
Allow it to cool.
