Gujiya is a snack specially prepared during the Holi festival. Towards the north of India, it is known as gujiya whereas towards the South, it is called as Ada.

  2. Add water as required, and knead it with hand until it has a consistency of a roti or puri dough.
  3. Let it rest for a while(until the filling is prepared).
  4. Filling: In a pan, add ghee and roast the cashews.Add the rest of the ingredients for the filling and saute well.Keep it aside and let it cool.
  5. Make small balls of the dough. Spread it with hand or a rolling pin. Cut it with a round cookies cutter. Place one spoonful filling onto it and fold and press the edges.
  6. Make a design by pinching and twisting all along the sealed edges or use a dumpling mould.
  7. Similarly, repeat the same with the other balls.

Usually, once deep fried, gujiya is dipped in sugar syrup and then served. (Why not a twist with chocolate syrup in gujiya..😋)
