Ingredients to make Gujiya/ Karanji/ Coconut Filled Hand Pies

  • 250 grams of all purpose flour
  • 125 grams of khoya
  • 400 grams of castor sugar (bura or powdered sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons of ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 tablespoon of muskmelon (cantaloupe) seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of chironji (Buchanania lanzan Seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon of raisins
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup of dessicated coconut
  • dumpling mould

How to make Gujiya/ Karanji/ Coconut Filled Hand Pies

  1. In a large bowl, add flour & ghee. Knead the dough using water. The dough should be firm to touch. Cover with a wet muslin cloth for few minutes.
  2. In a small pan, lightly roast the khoya. Add musk melon seeds, chironji, raisins, coconut & cardamom powder. Allow the mixture to cool down to room temperature. Add sugar quickly to prepare the filling.
  3. Make small balls from the dough. Roll out each ball into a circle. It should be big enough to cover the dumpling mold with a little overhang. Fill in about 1 tbsp filling in the center.
  4. Gently rub a wet finger (you can keep a bowl of water & dip your finger) around the edges of the mold & quickly close the mold. Wet finger will seal the mold well. Press & remove any extra dough outside the edges.
  5. Open the mold, gently remove the dumpling. Cover the dumpling with a slightly wet muslin cloth & continue with other dumplings.
  6. Heat oil in a deep wok, once the oil is hot fry the dumplings. Serve warm with tea or as a sweet.

My Tip:

You can make-ahead filling and refrigerate. Use with in 24 hours.
