Step By Step Method

  • Knead a stiff dough by combining ghee, flour, salt and some water and keep it aside covered with a moist muslin cloth for ½ an hour. Then roll them into small puris.

    Saute the khoya on a medium flame till it looks slightly fried. Once it cools, mix in the sugar, cardamom powder and chopped Almonds. Now shape them into oval shaped stuffing.

    Take a greased gujiya mold, place the small puris within the mold and press firmly. Now place the khoya stuffing within the hollow portion, apply a little water on the edges and close the mold firmly. Remove the extra dough and open the mold. Prepare as many gujiyas similarly. Deep fry the gujiyas in ghee till golden brown and drain the excess fat on some tissue papers.

    Prepare the sugar syrup by boiling the sugar and water together to one thread consistency and dip the gujiyas in sugar syrup and serve.
