  2. In a cooker, add 1 tsp ghee, dalia and roast for a minute. Add washed Moong dal and saute for a minute or two, add milk. Pressure cook it for two whistle, turn off the flame, let the steam release on its own, open the lid and grind it into a paste, pour this batter in a non stick pan and stir it continuously on a low flame. Soon it will look like khoya or a dough.

  5. Preheat the airfryer at 200 degree centigrade, cook the greased gujiya in for 10 minutes or till golden in colour, flip the gujiya after 5 minutes.
  6. Prepare the sugar syrup of two thread consistency. Dip the gujiya in syrup and place on a wire rack. Garnish with pista and silver warak.
  7. Prepare an orange sauce for garnish and as a dip.

My Tip:

Grease the gujiyas with ghee before airfrying.
