Low Fat Baked Gujiya

Ingredients to make Low Fat Baked Gujiya

  • Dough - 1 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • Cold water to knead the dough
  • Filling - 1/2 cup Khoya/mawa (dried milk)
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 1 tablespoon semolina (roasted on a low heat till a pleasant aroma emanates)
  • 5 cardamom seeds powdered
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 4 tablespoons pistachios chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cashews chopped
  • 2 tablespoons almonds chopped
  • Flour paste - Mix 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour in 1 tablespoon of water to form a thick paste

How to make Low Fat Baked Gujiya

  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a kneading plate. Add water and knead a stiff dough. Cover and keep for at least half an hour.
  2. Take khoya in a thick bottomed steel wok. Cook on a low heat, the khoya will become soft. Keep stirring and use ladle to break lumps. When it becomes lump free, turn off the heat and let it cool.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients of the filling and mix well.
  4. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees celsius.
  5. To make the gujiyas, take small balls of dough and roll out small thin chapattis. Do not dust with flour. Cut it into a round with a bowl. This gives uniformly sized gujiyas.
  6. Put 1 and 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of filling and apply the flour paste on half part of the rolled dough. Fold one side of the round over the other and seal the edges.
  7. Cut the edges with a fluted gujiya cutter or twist the edges to seal.
  8. Arrange them on the baking tray. Bake till the top turns golden. It will take about 10 to 12 minutes. Turn and bake the other side. Remove from the baking dish and spread on the wire rack to cool.
  9. Serve it warm.

My Tip:

You can get really creative with the filling. Add more of nuts or add loads of raisins, currants and dates.
