  • For the outer covering

Cooking tips

  • Don’t compromise on the sweetness of Gujiya by not adding Sugar. Use Sugar Free Natura instead.

Preparation

  • Mash khoya and roast it in a deep pan on medium heat till pink. Take off the heat and let it cool.
  • Add all the other filling ingredients along with Sugar Free Natura to the khoya and keep aside.
  • To prepare the covering, sieve flour and salt and rub in five tablespoons of ghee. Add enough water and knead into a firm dough. Cover it with a moist cloth and keep aside for fifteen minutes.
  • Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a small puri of four inches diameter.
  • Spread a puri on a greased gujiya mould and fill a tablespoon of the filling mixture on one side.
  • Moisten the edges of the puri and fold one side of the mould over the other. Press the edges and remove the excess dough and reuse.
  • Prepare all the gujiyas and spread on a damp cloth.
  • Heat sufficient ghee in a deep pan and deep-fry the gujiyas, in batches on medium heat, till golden brown.
  • Drain onto an absorbent paper. Cool and store in an airtight tin.
