Stuffing:Heat ghee in a pan. Add mawa, sugar and mix well. Stir till the mawa becomes soft. Add raisins. Mix cardamom powder. This is the Stuffing. Cool and keep aside.
Sugar Syrup: Prepare sugar syrup.
Lucchi: Place flour, salt, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add ghee. Mix till mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add water little by little, to form a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a wet cloth for 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into small balls. Flatten each ball and roll into 4 – 5-inch diameter circle. Use little oil for rolling. Repeat the same process with the remaining dough.
Take one rolled dough (luchi), spread 1 tbsp of mawa mix over it and cover with other rolled dough (luchi). Seal the edges.
Heat oil in a frying pan. When it is hot reduce the heat. Drop a stuffed luchi into the hot oil. Once it puffs up flip the other side. Take out the fried luchi from the oil when it is light brown in color. Keep it on a paper towel to drain out the excess oil. Fry one stuffed luchi at a time.
Take one fried stuffed luchi, dip in the sugar syrup (on both sides) and take out quickly, keep in a flat tray. Repeat for the other stuffed luchis.
Garnish with pista slivers and silver foil.
