Method
Mix maida & ghee in a bowl,add water & little by little & form into a soft dough.Cover & rest it for 15 minutes.
Take a pan & in low flame roast the khoya for a minute,remove it in a bowl.In the same pan dry roast the nuts for a minute and take them out.
Mix khoya,nuts,coconut,cardamom powder,sugar & saffron in a bowl & your filling is ready.
Now roll out the dough into a big circle (Do not roll them out very thin),i used a round cutter to cut them into small circles.
Place a  teaspoon of the filling in the middle of the circle.Wet the edges & place another circle on top of the filling.Seal it well by pressing the edges with a fork.if you can make the design then fold the edges to give a pattern.
Heat oil in a kadai,drop these chandrakala in oil.In medium low flame fry them both sides till light golden brown.Remove on paper napkin,prick each chandrakala once in the middle(for the sugar syrup to penetrate).
Immediately soak them in the warm sugar syrup,turn both sides & keep it for couple of minutes.Remove them on a place ,sprinkle with chopped nuts,saffron & vark,serve them at room temperature.
Note:
a) Do not hurry up in frying,always fry in medium low flame.
b) Make your dough non-sticky & pliable.
c) Do not roll out the circles very thin,otherwise your filling will come out.
d) While frying add ghee & oil,which gives a nice rich taste to your sweet.
