Instructions:

  1. Crafting the Dough: Sift the flour into a spacious bowl. Combine melted ghee and salt, mixing until it resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until a soft and pliable dough forms. Knead the dough for 5 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and allow it to rest for 30 minutes.

  2. Preparing the Filling: Heat ghee in a pan over medium heat. Add the grated A2 Milk Mawa and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until slightly golden brown.

  3. Incorporate the chopped nuts, raisins, cardamom powder, and powdered Desi Khand. Mix well and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the filling becomes fragrant and slightly dry. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.

  4. Assembling the Gujiyas: Divide the dough into equal portions and roll each portion into a thin circle, dusting with flour as needed. Place a spoonful of the filling in the center of each circle.

  5. Shaping the Gujiyas: Moisten the edges of the dough circle with water. Fold the circle in half to form a crescent moon shape, pressing the edges firmly to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.

  6. Cooking Options: You can either deep fry or bake your Gujiyas:

    • Deep Frying: Heat oil in a deep pan over medium heat. Once hot, carefully slide the Gujiyas into the oil and fry until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.

    • Baking: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Arrange the Gujiyas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with melted ghee and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

  7. Serving and Sharing: Allow the Gujiyas to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy them warm or at room temperature, and share the joy of tradition with your loved ones!

Tips:

  • Ensure the ghee is lukewarm, not hot, when adding it to the dough.

  • Avoid overcooking the filling; it should retain a slight moistness.

  • If the dough becomes sticky, add a little more flour.

  • Adjust the sweetness of the filling based on your preference.

  • For a vegan option, substitute the A2 Milk Mawa with vegan alternatives like crumbled tofu or mashed sweet potato.
