Holi, the festival of colours, is incomplete without food, especially sweets. There is one sweet which is most commonly prepared during this time. And that is gujiya! Gujiya is made with maida stuffed with a mixture of mawa, sugar and dry fruits & coconut.
Here is a simple gujiya recipe that can be
baked in thirty minutes using a microwave.
The ingredients for Gujiya are divided into three parts – the fillings, sugar syrup, and wrapper. Filling for the gujiya consists of
Dried fruits, nuts
Home made or store bought
For saving time with the wrapper, the best way is to use store-bought dough. Keep it overnight in the refrigerator and use it only before stuffing. Sugar syrup is a standard two-ingredient mix.
For baking in a Microwave Oven, heat the khoya for at most five minutes in 1-minute increments. Keep stirring in between so that the khoya becomes soft. This is strictly for preparing the recipe using a microwave.
Add the chopped nuts, coconut flakes, and cardamom powder to the soft khoya. Mix thoroughly and allow the mixture to get cooled for at least four minutes. To complete the stuffing, add sugar and adjust it depending on your taste preferences.
The next step is assembling the Gujiya. Place the maida crust and roll the dough outwards to thin it out. Make circles using a cookie cutter or cut into two-inch pieces. Fill each circle with two teaspoons of filling and press the edges to seal it.
Bake for 11-13 minutes in a preheated oven at 400F degrees by placing it on a silicone baking mat. Cool for 5 minutes after.
Heat a saucepan in medium heat, add sugar and water for preparing the sugar syrup. Bring it to a boil and switch to medium heat to make a thick paste. Dip the Baked Gujiyas into the Sugar Syrup, and you can add pistachios as well for decorative purposes to complete the dish.
For a great Gujiya, you need an excellent microwave oven as well.
