Gujia is very famous traditional and authentic Indian mithai or sweet which prepared during Holi and Diwali. I have learnt this recipe from my aunty. On the very auspicious day i.e. Holi, a colourful festival for everyone… for this fest, I prepare very tempting and delicious Indian sweet; “Mawa Gujia”. Before two three days, One of mine food lover asked about gujia’s recipe, so that this recipe is for Anjali arora. Hope this will be helpful for her.
As I prefer little light sweet in dessert or Indian sweet, so adjust sugar consistency as per your tastebuds. You can prepare sugar syrup coated gujia also. In a market there is different flavors of gujias are available but mawa gujia is authentic recipe for Holi. For this recipe, you have to prepare stuffing with mawa, roasted semolina, dry fruits, coconuts and sugar which filled in crust and deep fried in oil.
Preparation Time: 45 Minutes
Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
Servings: 16 Pieces
2 Cup All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
2 Tbsp. Desi Ghee
1/4 Cup Lukewarm Milk
2/3 Cup Grated Condense Milk/ Mawa/ Khoya
1/4 Cup Roasted Semolina
1/4 Cup Desiccated Coconut Powder
1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Almonds, Cashews and Pistachios
2 Tbsp. Raisins
1 Tsp. Cardamom Powder
1/3 Cup Sugar Powder/ Bura (as per taste)
Oil for Deep Frying
Sieve flour and mix melted ghee with fingertips. Add enough lukewarm milk (mix little water) for making stiff dough for gujia crust. Keep aside for 20 minutes and cover with wet muslin clothe. Divide this dough into equal 16 balls. Roll this into round chapati form via rolling pin.
Combine stuffing ingredients in one bowl and mix well.
Place the round chapati into gujia maker and add 2 tbsp. stuffing in centre and smear the edges with maida and water thick paste and close the edges carefully. Remove the extra dough from the gujia maker and do same with rest of balls and stuffing.
Heat the enough oil in wok for deep frying. When oil is hot enough, place 2-3 gujia in one time till to golden and crisp. Now gujia is ready to serve on very auspicious day of holi.
Note: if you want to sugar coated gujia, then prepare sugar syrup with 1 cup sugar and 1/4 Cup water on medium flame. Soak this gujia in sugar syrup for 2 minutes. Drain and serve this gujia.
