Gujiya Recipe, Mawa Gujiya Recipe (Holi/Diwali Recipe)

A festival without sweet is not possible in India. We Indians love our festivals and also the sweets served during festive season. Let it be holi, diwali, uttrayan/makarsankranti or even maha shivratri; sweets makes integral part of indian culture. Gajar halwa, churma ladoo or gehu ke laddu , suji halwa, kheer etc are must for any festival in India. There is yet another sweet which also doubles as snack as this sweet is not very sweet. Yes I am talking about “Gujiya” – A fried crispy flaky pastry stuffed with sweet filling made from khoya and desiccated coconut.
