It's Holi time, which means Gujiya is mandatory. And let's celebrate this Holi by making some beautiful and yummy Mawa Gujiya.

Ingredients:

For the Gujiya dough:

        1 ½ cups of Maida

        4 tsp Ghee (melted)

 

For the Mawa Filling:

        250 gms Khoya

        8-10 Almonds (chopped)

        10-15 Cashew (chopped)

        1 tbsp Chironji

        1 tbsp Coconut (grated)

        1 tbsp Cardamom Powder

        150 gms Sugar (powdered)

        Ghee / Oil to fry

 

Method:

To make the dough:

        Take a bowl, add maida and melted ghee and mix it well so that the mixture takes a form when you bind it together.

*You can use oil instead of ghee as well.

        Now add some lukewarm water to the mixture (as much as required) and knead it into a soft yet firm dough.

        Cover the dough and set it aside once it's fully kneaded.

 

To make the filling:

        Take a pan and add the khoya to it and roast it until there is a change in its colour. Stir the khoya constantly to make sure that the khoya doesn’t burn.

        Then add almonds, cashews, Chironji, grated coconut, and mix it well.

        Then add cardamom powder and mix it well.

        Roast the mixture well until the moisture evaporates from it.

 *You can add any dry fruits that you prefer. And also, you can use fresh coconut as well.

        Now transfer the mixture into a bowl, add powdered sugar and mix it well.

 

To assemble the Gujiya:

        Now knead the dough again, divide them and roll each of them into a small ball.

        Make a paste with 2 tbsp of maida and 2 tbsp of water, this paste is used as a kind of gum to stick the dough so that the gujiya doesn’t break open.

        Take a ball of dough and flatten it on a Chakla (Rolling board).

        The first method to make it is by using a mould, roll out the dough ball well, and place it in the mould, then apply the maida paste around the edges of the gujiya and add the filling inside, and close the mould and seal the gujiya.

        The second method to make it is to just roll out the dough ball well and, then apply the maida paste around the edges of the gujiya and add the filling inside it. Then fold the gujiya and seal it well with your hands and then, use a fork to make the design on the edges.

        The third method is to roll out the dough ball well and, then apply the maida paste around the edges of the gujiya, then add the filling inside it. Then fold the gujiya and crimp the edges to seal them, this method also makes the gujiya look pretty.

        Once all of them are ready fry them in ghee on low to medium heat until golden brown.

* Make sure to cover these gujiyas with a moist cloth so it doesn’t become dry.

        Now your Mawa Gujiya is ready.

        You can store them in an airtight container and enjoy these tasty gujiyas for more than a month.
