Gujiya Recipe


  • 1 kg Khoya
  • 200 ml Water
  • 500 gm Sugar
  • 500 gms Maida
  • 3 tbsp Kishmish
  • 200 gm sliced Almonds
  • 1/4 cup Coconut powder
  • 6 tbsp Cooking Oil
  • Ghee for deep frying
  • 15 gm Cardamom powder


  1. Mix cooking oil with the maida.
  2. Using fingers, mix well so that the mixture takes the form of breadcrumbs and binds to a certain extent. Now add some water and knead lightly. Keep adding water as required and knead into a soft dough. Set aside for about 25-30 minutes.
  3. Put the khoya in a deep-frying pan and fry to a light brown colour. Add sugar into the khoya and mix well. Add thin strips of almonds, cardamom powder and kismish and cocunut powder. Fry for a few minutes and remove from the fire. Let it cool, roll out the kneaded dough into a chapati, thicker and smaller than a normal chapati.
  4. Fill half the chapati with the khoya mixture, fold the chapati and seal the round, twisting the edges inwards. Take care that the filling does not ooze out.
  5. Take a deep frying pan. Put ghee and allow it to heat till smoking point.
  6. Deep fry till golden brown. Fry on a slow fire. When done, take them out with a sieve type ladle, draining the oil completely.

Tip: Ants in the Sugar? Place 3-4 cloves in with the sugar. This will keep the ants from entering.
