We are headed towards the spring season and one festival that marks its onset is the festival of colours- Holi. The festival is here and we can't help but think of water guns, vibrant colours and endless food indulgences. From collecting colours to buying water guns and most importantly, preparing all the traditional Holi-special snacks. And when we speak of Holi snacks, the first treat that delight our taste buds is the flaky sweet dumpling, Gujiya! A traditional Indian sweet, Gujiya is prepared in millions of Indian households, particularly in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and in some parts of Maharashtra around the festival.
Nowadays gujiya comes with a number of flavourful stuffing and while we love each one of them equally, the classic gujiya never fails to impress us. The sinful stuffing of khoya, sugar, nuts and dry fruits make this sweetmeat immensely loved.
Here is a recipe of traditional gujiya from NDTV Food's Youtube channel that is quick, easy and a perfect appetiser for your Holi party. In the recipe, khoya is dry roasted and mixed with sugar, cardamom and dry fruits before being stuffed into flour gujiya duplings. It is then deep-fried till crisp and served hot!
