About Gulkand Flavored Mava Gujiya Recipe

Gujiya is a classic Indian stuffed , deep fried, sweet dumpling which is made during festivals like Holi and Diwali. Usually, gujiya is made from refined flour and is stuffed with sweetened khoya , coconut and dry fruits. To make it healthier I have made these gujiya with whole wheat flour and suji and there is no added sugar in the stuffing as i have stuffed the gujiya with a mixture of home made khoya, dates , raisins and nuts like almonds and pistachios. The gujiya is flavored with gulkand (rose petal jam).

How to make Gulkand Flavored Mava Gujiya

  1. For making the covering for gujiya, in a bowl take whole wheat flour, suji, salt and sugar. Mix it. To this add hot ghee and mix well to get a bread crumb like consistency.
  2. Now add warm milk little by little and knead the flour into a stiff dough. The amount of milk required depends on the flour . I used 4 tablespoon of milk .
  3. Cover the dough with a moist muslin cloth and set aside for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile we will make the stuffing. In a non stick wok heat 1 teaspoon of ghee and add the crumbled khoya and roast on a low heat until the fat separates. Take care the khoya doesn't stick to the bottom.
  5. Put off the flame, remove khoya on to a plate and allow it to cool down completely.
  6. In a plate take the chopped dates, nuts , raisins and gulkand and add the cooled khoya to it and mix well. Our stuffing is ready.
  7. Knead the dough again for a while and make 12 equal portions.Roll out each dough ball into a small disc with a rolling pin, without adding any flour.
  8. Place the disc on the plam and add 1 tablespoon filling on half portion of it with a spoon. Apply little water on the edges of the dough disc and place the other end over the one haffing stuffing, to get a half moon shape.
  9. Apply little pressure on the edges to seal them . Now starting from the right corner start making pleats on the edges to make a beautiful pattern around the stuffed gujiya.
  10. Heat enough oil in a deep wok on medium flame and deep fry the gujiya in batches, until they are crisp and gloden brown from both the sides.
  11. Remove the fried gujiya with a perforated ladle and allow them to drain on an absorbent paper.
  12. Allow the gujiya to cool down completely before transferring them to an air tight container. Enjoy the delicious mava gujiya with your loved ones !

My Tip:

Keep the dough balls and shaped gujiya covered under a moist muslin cloth during the working time to prevent them from drying out.
