Add chiroti rava, refined flour, ghee, salt, and water to a mixing bowl to make a pliable dough. Knead well. Keep aside for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat ghee in a pan, add cashew nut and fry till brown, add grated coconut, badam drink mix and mix well. Switch off the flame.
Take a lemon-sized dough and make a small ball out of it. Roll them into a small circle of 2 mm thickness. Place a spoon of stuffing on one side of the rolled dough.
Fold the pastry to form a semi-circle. Mark the edges with the fork to give them shapes and stick them together. Repeat the same procedure for all the remaining balls.
Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry the filled karjikai in moderately hot oil till light brown colour.
