For this month SNC, Santosh Bangar of Santosh's Kitchen has challenged us with this yummy sweet Mawa Gujiyas. This Mawa Gujiya is prepared during Holi festival in north India especially in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
All Purpose Flour / Maida 2 cups
Salt 1/4 tsp
Hot oil 1 tbsp
Water for kneading
Mawa 1/2 cup
Grated coconut 1/4 cup
Powdered Sugar 1/2 cup
Almond Flakes 1 tblsp
Raisins 1 tblsp
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
For sealing (sealant) :
All purpose flour 1 tblsp
Water 1 tblsp or as needed
Combine All purpose flour and salt in a bowl. Add hot oil to the flour mixture. Knead with water to form a soft dough. Keep it aside for half an hour.
Fry the mawa in a pan until brown, add other ingredients and give it a mix. Keep it aside.
Mix All purpose flour with water which is used to seal the gujiyas later.
Roll the dough into small poori. Keep the filling inside. Seal the edges with the sealant and a fork. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough and cover it with wet kitchen towel.
Now heat oil to deep fry the gujiyas. Fry till light brown. Remove the excess oil with paper towel and then serve.
