Gujiya Recipe ~ Holi Special Dishes Recipes
Today I have for you Gujiya recipe which is a Holi special sweet like Malpua, Thandai and the likes. It is made in most parts of India and goes by different names like Ghugra, Karanji (Maharashtra), Pedakiya (Bihar) and Nevries (Goa). Gujiya is what we Andhras call Kajikayalu, the recipe of which I have blogged earlier. Both Gujiya and Kajikayalu follow the same recipe and procedure. The filling for Gujiya and Kajikayalu is a mixture of roasted dry coconut, nuts, khoya or sooji (semolina), cardamom powder and powdered sugar.
Gujiya is not an overly sweet dish. It has a crispy, flaky exterior with a cardamom flavored sweet filling. Today, am blogging Mawa Gujiya where unsweetened khoya is used in place of sooji (semolina). It can be stored at room temperature upto two weeks.
So, now that you have the recipe of Gujiya on hand, are you going try it this Holi? 🙂
