love to make my own experiments in kitchen. I used to go through different
blogs and pages, so that we will get new ideas and good recipes. Likewise, I
once went through your page Simply Tadka, 1st I thought it’s a page similar to

companies asking for their product suggestions, different events and
interesting recipes; I loved your presentation too. You have been very much
supportive for beginners.”

Mawa Gujia

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
Ingredients:
For Crust

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

Direction
For Crust
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.
For Stuffing
Combine stuffing ingredients in one bowl and mix well.
For Assembling
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.

Wow…. Dove So amazing!!

When I heard about Dove
Contest on Indiblogger “Beautiful Ends to your Beautiful Braids”… I was excited
and did not want to waste an opportunity to grab Dove Shampoo and Conditioner
Hamper. I’m big lover of Dove product as I already used Dove shampoo hair fall
therapy and conditioner, dove face wash, dove deodorant, dove soap and more.

In my childhood, my mother
used to take give me head message by applying coconut oil and wash with shampoo
twice a week. Those days the conditioners were not available in market and we
were using Heena as conditioner. That’s why my hairs were so shiny, thick and
long in my childhood.

As I grew, I started trying
out new styles with my hairs like curling, pressing and coloring which resulted
in losing the texture that I had in my childhood and also gave way to rough and
damage hair. From two years I have been using Dove Hair fall therapy and it has
helped me in regaining the shininess, glossy and strong hairs.
Under this new dove split
end rescue system, contain ¼ Moisturising milk which nourish your hair gently
and its break through split-end technology corrects hair damage to give you
up to 4x less split ends. So dove is beautiful treat for your gentle hairs. After
using Dove shampoo and conditioner, just braid your hair as you like and rub
the end of braid on your cheeks. You can easily feel the difference.
Dos for better and smooth hairs:
  • Always comb gently, don’t
    force.
  • Tie your hair back at the
    time of travelling which solve the problem of entanglement.
  • Have a proper Balanced diet.
Thanks to Dove Split End Rescue System… It’s really amazing… Now my hair
looks more rich and smooth. Thanks a lot Dove… Love you
