Gujiya Recipe: Step By Step
1. Knead the dough for a minute.
2. Divide it into equal pieces. Roll each part in your palms to make balls. Cover with a moist kitchen towel.
3. Roll each ball with the rolling pin to a small circle about 4 inch disc and by the time you start filling keep all the rolled discs in a plate covered with damp cloth.
4. Now use a gujiya mould and keep the rolled disc in it and fill it with 1 tsp of filling. Apply the sealant on the borders and press the mould and remove the extra dough from around. Remove the gujiya from the mould and store in a plate covered with damp cloth.
5. If you don’t have gujiya mould then take a round disk and with your fingertip, apply water all over the circumference edge. Place about 1 tbsp of the khoya stuffing on one side of the circle, keeping edges empty. Carefully, bring together both the edges and join. Gently press the edges and make pleated design at the edges.
6. When all the gujiya are filled, heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan.
7. Deep fry the gujiyas on medium low flame till golden brown.
8. Let the gujiyas cool and your Gujiya is ready to serve and store in an airtight container.
1. The dough should be stiff enough.
2. While rolling the dough, keep the remaining dough covered.
3. Carefully watch the temperature of ghee while frying. These should be fried on medium heat, at the right temperature.
4. Never overfill the Gujiyas as they will break open on frying.
