Ingredients to make Gujiya

  • For the dough:
  • 500 gm refined flour (maida)
  • 150 gm desi ghee, melted
  • water to knead the dough
  • For the filling:
  • 400 gm roasted khoya
  • 200 gm sugar
  • 1 bowl of finely chopped dry fruits (cashewnut, raisins, almond and grated coconut)
  • 1 spoon elaichi powder
  • ghee/refined oil for deep frying

How to make Gujiya

  1. Prepare a normal dough with ghee. Cover and keep aside.
  2. Put in the powdered sugar, dry fruits, elaichi powder in khoya and mix it well.
  3. Put 1 spoon maida in 1/2 bowl water and mix it well. (This will work as an adhesive to join the gujiyas.)
  4. Make small balls from the dough and roll it like a roti. Fill 1-2 spoons of mixture and make it like a gujiya applying water prepared in the previous step. Make gujiyas of all the dough.
  5. Dry them under a fan from both the sides. (This will use less ghee.)
  6. Deep fry them on a low and medium flame very carefully as the gujiyas are very delicate and can break it easily.
  7. Fry until it attains a light pink colour. It is now ready to eat!
