Gujiya is an Indian sweet that is most commonly made during the festival of Holi. Unlike most indian desserts, the gujiya is not an overly sweet dish.
  • Maida – 2 cups
  • Atta – 2 cups
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Ghee – 4 tbsp
  • Khoa – 500 gms
  • Brown sugar – 6 tbsp
  • Fresh grated coconut – 4 tbsp
  • Ground cardamom – 1 tsp
  • A handful of almonds – roughly chopped.
  1. Sieve the flours and salt and rub in the ghee. Add enough water to knead into a firm dough.
  2. Cover it with a moist cloth and chill overnight.
  3. Roast the khoya in a deep pan on medium heat. The Nanak frozen khoya (available at Mustafa) works perfectly well here. Add all the other filling ingredients to the khoya and keep aside.
  4. Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a small puri of four inches diameter.
  5. Fill a tablespoon of the filling mixture on one side. Moisten the edges of the puri and fold one side over the other. Crimp / twist/ press down the edges.
  6. Set the Airfryer to 180 deg celsius. Pop in the gujiyas for 14-16 mins.
