Semolina Gujiya Recipe


Recipe :

  • Step 1 Prepare the dough

    First of all, take maida in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp oil or ghee and mix it well. Add water as needed to make the dough (just like poori dough). Once the dough is ready, allow it to rest for 1/2 hour.

  • Step 2 Prepare the filling

    To prepare the stuffing, take a bowl and add grated coconut, powdered sugar, chopped raisins, chopped cashew nuts, cardamom powder, and semolina. Mix well and keep it aside.

  • Step 3 Shape gujiyas and add filling

    Again, knead the dough well and make small balls just like the way you make poori. Take a small ball and roll out thin poori. Take a gujiya mold and place the poori in the mold. Put a spoonful of stuffing in the center of the poori. Press it gently. Take out the dough from the sides of the mold. Repeat with other balls and stuffing.

  • Step 4 Deep fry till golden brown

    Next, heat oil or ghee in a Kadhai, make sure that the quantity of oil or ghee is sufficient to deep fry the gujiyas. Once ready, deep fry gujiya till they turn golden brown in colour both sides.

  • Step 5 Serve hot

    Now, transfer golden brown gujiyas to a serving plate and serve hot!
