About Dahi ki Gujiya

We used to shift the gas stove in the living room where Mom would pack the gujiyas and Dad would fry them. I never cared for the sweet gujiyas much. My favourites were all the savoury things that Mom would make - mathri, papdi chaat, namakpare etc. Her speciality though was dahi ki gujiya also called dahi wade or dahi bhalle. Mom's version had a filling of green chillies, raisins and ginger in it which was like surprise packed inside the gujiya. Take a bite and you would suddenly get sweet and spicy taste.

Dahi ki Gujiya

Ingredients to make Dahi ki Gujiya

  • 500 gms white urad dal (soaked overnight)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green chillies
  • 1/4 cup chopped raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped ginger
  • 1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida)
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup jaggery
  • 1/2 cup tamarind pulp
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 500 gms thick curd
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • Chopped green coriander
  • A mix of salt red chilli powder and roasted cumin powder (1 tsp each)

How to make Dahi ki Gujiya

  1. Drain the water from the soaked urad dal and grind it into thick paste.
  2. Mix hing in this paste. We won't add salt so that you can store the gujiyas for longer.
  3. Heat oil in a wok. Take some paste in your hand, keep some chopped chillies, raisins and ginger in the centre, close it to shape it like a gujiya and deep fry till it turns golden.
  4. Remove the gujiyas from oil and instantly drop them in a bowl full of salted water which will discard excess oil and soften the gujiyas. But if you're planning to store them for later then don't do it right away. You can soak the gujiyas in salted warm water half an hour before serving.
  5. Heat tamarind pulp in a pan, add jaggery and red chilli powder and heat it till it turns into a thick chutney. Let it cool down completely. You can store it in the fridge for later.
  6. Add sugar to curd and whisk it.
  7. Now squeeze out excess water from gujiyas and place them in a bowl. Top them with whisked curd, chutney, season with spice mix, garnish with coriander and serve.

I have tried this once but I did not know that we have to add Hing to the batter....does it change the taste significantly?
