How to make Mawa Gujiya

  1. Take a pan and dry roast mawa until golden. In another pan dry roast melon seeds.
  2. Make a mixture by adding all the ingredients except flour and ghee. Combine flour and ghee separately. Knead a soft dough by adding cold water. Cover with a muslin cloth and set aside for ½ hour.
  3. Divide into equal sized small balls and shape into small poori’s.
  4. Take a poori and place a tsp of the prepared mixture on it. Bring the borders together and seal with your hands. (You can use some little water here)

My Tip:

You can also add some chopped raisins.
