  • For Dough:
  • All Purpose Flour – 2 cups
  • Ghee – 1/4 cup
  • Salt – 1 pinch
  • Water as required
  • For Stuffing:
  • Ghee – 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped Almonds – 2 tbsp
  • Chopped Cashewnut – 2 tbsp
  • Chopped Pista – 1 tbsp
  • Desiccated Coconut – 3 tbsp
  • Raisins – 1 tbsp
  • Mawa Khoya – 200 gms
  • Saffron Strands
  • Cardamom Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar Powder – 4 tbsp
  • For Chasni Sugar Syrup:
  • Sugar – 300gm
  • Water – 3/4 cup

  • Step 1: To make the filling, roast semolina (suji) on low flame till it changes color. Mix in sweetened condensed milk, cardamom powder, raisins, cashew nuts, almonds, and grated coconut. Cook on medium/low flame, stirring occasionally, till the mixture is dry. Divide into 16 portions.
  • Step 2: To prepare the dough, pour ghee into the flour. Add water and make it into a stiff dough. Knead the dough till pliable. Keep aside covered for 10-15 minutes. Knead the dough once again. Divide into 16 balls.
  • Step 3: Roll each ball into a flat round. Place one portion of the filling, fold it over, and shape it into gujiya, sealing the edges with little water. Deep fry in hot oil till golden brown.
  • Step 4: To seal, use gujiya moulds or press with the ends of a fork or simply twist with your hand.



  • Create a soft, elastic dough for flaky Gujiyas by incorporating ghee for added richness.
  • Ensure a secure seal to prevent filling leakage when frying Gujiya sweets.
  • Achieve a golden, crispy texture by frying Gujiyas in medium-hot oil.
  • Dip your Gujiyas in warm sugar syrup for a sweet, glossy finish.
  • You can experiment with different fillings like chocolate or gulkand (rose filling).
