chashni wali mawa gujiya

ChashniWali Mawa Gujiya: A unique method of making gujiya with milk solids and dry fruit stuffing Furthermore, the deep-fried gujiya is dipped in mildly sweetened sugar syrup to make it more appealing and tasty. This type of gujiya is only made during the festival seasons, particularly during the Holi and Diwali festivals.

Gujiya recipes are popular throughout India and are prepared for a variety of reasons. In fact, it is made with various stuffings, each of which serves a specific purpose and has its own rationale. This recipe is for mawa or khoya stuffing dipped in sugar syrup, also known as chashni wali gujiya.

I’ve already posted the other gujiya with sugar variations. But I always wanted to share the stuffed gujiya with mawa or khoya. I was just waiting for the right time. While the Holi festival is approaching, I thought I’d share it as a holi dessert. In fact, it is popular in northern India, particularly in Uttar Pradesh, and is served with dry fruit milk or bhaang drink. Furthermore, in south India, the same recipe is known as chandrakala or suryakala sweet recipe. While the shape is different, the stuffing and process are very similar. When compared to the south Indian version, I believe the gujiya is better shaped.

In addition, I’d like to highlight a few tips, tricks, and variations on the chashni wali gujiya recipe. First and foremost, as an authentic recipe, I made this with plain flour or maida. However, for a more health-conscious approach, this recipe can also be made with wheat flour or atta. Second, I made instant milk mawa or khoya with milk powder and dry fruits such as raisins, almonds, and cashews. However, this recipe tastes best when made with traditional khoya or mawa milk solids. Finally, dipping the deep-fried gujiya in sugar syrup completes the dish. However, some people may find the recipe to be too sweet. As a result, you can skip it and serve it without dipping it in sugar syrup.
