Holi goodies include the sweet gujiyas. How about a quick method to prepare these flavour bursting sweet meats?
Gujiyas are delicacies with a refined flour coating stuffed with roasted mawa, grated coconut, sugar and dry fruits of your choice. One bite into it and flavours burst into your mouth. If we go the traditional way we may end up spending a lot of time preparing them. And living in nuclear families time is one thing we are always short of. So let us tweak the traditional process without compromising on the taste.
The mawa we use for the stuffing is roasted, a step which takes some time. It then has to be cooled to before we can stuff it. To cut this process short we can use the Indian sweet ‘milk cake’ which is easily available at any Indian sweet meat store.
Instead of spending time grating coconut we can use shredded coconut we find at grocery stores. Roasted rawa is also available nowadays so we need not spend time roasting the rawa too.
The ingredients given here make a meagre 10 gujiyas. You can increase the quantity as per your requirement.
