Baked gujiyas are stuffed with crumbled and roasted khoya and dried fruits and nuts and make a delectable sweet to celebrate any occasion.
For the last day of posting Mothers day sweets here, I am making baked gujiyas which are so delicious and amazing and the plus point is they are baked. That makes it a guilt-free treat to enjoy any time a day. Gujias are my mother’s favourite sweet in Holi.
She would always make few batches of this sweet with fresh homemade khoya and dried fruits. As a kid, I would see her making the gujias and gradually I started helping her as of my interest in cooking started very early. I think some dishes are linked with those sweet memories that can never be forgotten.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- Water as required
- 1 cup Khoya
- 1 cup dried nuts , crushed
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup ghee/ clarified butter
- oil to smear
In a mixing bowl add plain flour and knead a smooth dough.
Heat clarified butter in a wok, add chopped nuts and roast them for 2 minutes and take them out.
In the same wok add khoya and roast it until brown and fragrant.
In a bowl add fried nuts and khoya and sugar powder. Mix well and set aside.
Make 15 to 20 balls from the dough.Take one ball on the flat board and dust it with dry flour.
Roll it slightly to the size of Puri.
Place a heap of stuffing on one side and fold it. Press the edges and pinch them with a fork. Or simply use gujiya mould.
Brush them with a little oil. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Arrange the gujiyas on the baking tray and bake in the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden.

Serve and enjoy.
The gujiyas can be stored in airtight containers for two weeks.
