Semolina Gujia


Hello friends. Happy Holi to all of you. Every year I make Malpuas, Dahi Bhalle, and Mutton Curry as my Holi special menu but this time I decided to do Semolina Gujias. It is a savory sweet of India and is mostly made in households on the occasion of Holi. So today I am sharing this recipe with you all. Hope you like it. Wish you all a very colorful happy Holi. The recipe is as follows:-

Ingredients:-For the dough:-

  1. Maida – 1/2 kg
  2. Refined Oil – 4 tbsp
  3. Baking Powder – 1 tsp

For the filling:-

  1. Khoya – 150 gms
  2. Sooji – 250 gms
  3.  Sugar – As required
  4. Green Cardamom Powder – 1 tsp
  5. Shredded Dry Coconut(khopra) – 10 pieces
  6. Raisins – A few
  7. Vegetable Oil – For deep frying


Step 1

Step 2

To prepare the gujia filling, take a non-stick pan and dry roast the semolina on a medium flame for three minutes. Add the required amount of sugar, cardamom powder, shredded coconut, khoya, raisins and fry all these again until two minutes without adding oil. Our gujia filling is done.

Step 3

Now to make the gujias, take small portions from the dough and make balls. Next, make small pooris out of it and fill the above made filling in them.  Hold one side of the poori and stick it to the other end using little water on the edges as adhesive. When the gujia shape is formed, seal the edges giving it the shape as shown in the picture.  Do so for all the gujias.

Heat oil in a kadhai. When it is hot drop the gujias in it one by one and fry them out. Keep on tissue paper.

Our Semolina Gujias are done. Serve them as a delicacy sweet on the occasion of Holi.
