Ingredients and equipment required for making the perfect Gujiya Sweet Recipe:

Equipment  

  • Bowl  
  • Frying Pan 

Ingredients  

  • 1/2 cup purpose flour 
  • 1/2 tbsp. semolina 
  • 1 tbsp. oil 
  • 1/2 cup Mawa/Khoa 
  • 1 pinch of Cardamom powder 
  • 1 tbsp. sugar 
  • 1 tbsp. almonds 
  • 3 tbsp. coconut powder 
  • Melon seeds 
  • 1/2 tbsp. flour 
  • 1 tbsp. water 
  • 1/4 cups sugar 
  • 1/8 cup water 

Using simple and easy steps, let us learn to make the Gujiya Sweet Recipe. 

Making of the Dough 

  • The First Step is to prepare dough; we need to take a bowl and pour 1 cup of purpose flour, semolina, oil, and water into the bowl. The quality and texture of the flour are important factors in determining the water amount needed. So combine all ingredients, form dough, and cover with a cloth for 10- 15 minutes. Knead the dough until it becomes soft and supple. 

Mixing the ingredients 

  • So now comes the next step to making the perfect stuffing. We need to put a frying pan on low heat, add 1 tbsp. of oil, put the Khoa into the pan, and cook until the Khoa begins to clump. Remove the pan from the heat and set it on the table. The Khoa needs to cool completely at room temperature. You could take the stuffing to a plate and let it cool. Combine Mawa, Khoa, cardamom powder, sugar, almonds, coconut powder, and melon seeds in a frying pan. Blend everything and set aside the stuffing. Check the flavor and add extra powdered sugar if needed. 

Assembling 

  • Now comes the Assembling part; divide the dough into two parts, make a flat circle, and make a small roti or Shape each half into a medium-sized log and divide or split it into equal parts. To make a ball, roll each piece in your palms. Place all dough balls in the same bowl after preparing them this way. Cover the dish with a wet kitchen towel. 
  • Lightly dust the rolling board with flour. Roll each ball into a small circle of 4 to 5 inches in diameter using the rolling pin. If you can use less flour, you won’t have to worry about dusting completely. 
  • With your pastry brush, apply the water all over the edge. Place a minimum amount of the prepared Khoa filling on one side and keep the circle empty. Don’t add a lot of stuffing, as this can make it difficult to mold the Gujiya and split in the oil while frying. 
  • Now comes the shape for making the Gujiya, carefully attaching the edges to join them. Then gently press over the edges. The filling cannot come from the edges, so they are pressed well and sealed. The Gujiya must be sealed well and pressed very tightly to perform this method. 

 Frying  

  • The best place to make a pleats design for deep cooking is at the edges. The stuffing cannot come out when the Gujiya is in the frying pan. It’s advisable to keep twisting the edges until the end. Put the Gujiya on a plate or tray. Put them on a moist napkin, so they don’t dry out.  
  • In a frying pan, warm the oil for deep frying. Before frying, you first need to check the temperature of the oil. The dough needs to be put into the oil. If the dough comes up quickly, the oil can be ready as long as it continues. The oil is cold if the dough is in its traditional position at the bottom. If the piece of dough comes quickly, it will be too hot. 
  • Carefully pan them over and fry the other side. Deep fry them as needed to make them golden. Place the fried gujiya on the kitchen paper tissues. Some of the prepared gujiya should be fried in batches and let cool. For the Sugar syrup, add some sugar to the pan and let it boil until its consistency becomes a bit sticky. Add the gujiya you made, coat it with the sugar syrup, season it with fresh almonds, and enjoy and serve your delicious gujiya sweet with family and friends.
