Gujiyas are delicious fried dumplings which are made and consumed as a dessert during major Indian festivals. They are also known by other names like Purukiya and are one of the most popular festival special recipes in India. you will very often notice gujiyas being offered as prasad to Gods during pujas and rituals. The process of making Gujiyas is very similar to that of making other dumplings like Momos. The filling of Gujiya and the dough for the outer covering are made separately.

The process of making Gujiyas is very similar to that of making other dumplings like Momos. The filling of Gujiya and the dough for the outer covering are made separately. This festive dessert is also sold as a readymade item in local markets though they are difficult to package as they break easily. As a result there are no major companies selling Gujiyas in branded packages since transporting them without breakage is very tough.

One of the distinctive characteristics of Gujiyas that make them easily identifiable is their shape. They are typically shaped like a semi-circle with the rounded part of the circumference decorated with a cross-cross pattern. Different types of Gujiyas can be made simply by changing the composition of the filling. In some places the filling is made of a mixture of rava and sugar, while other combinations include khoya, coconuts, sugar, jaggery and in modern contexts even chocolates.

The filling can even be made salty though salty snacks are typically not offered to Gods during Hindu rituals and hence salty Gujiyas are relatively rare. Salted filling is typically made using pulses and can even be similar to the filling used for samosas! The amount of time for which you can store a set of Gujiyas depends largely on its filling. The outer covering of a Gujiya is normally made with maida dough and then it is fried and as a result it can be stored for a fairly long period of time. However, it is the filling that has a higher chance of getting spoilt due to improper storage or simply due to ingredients that decay very fast.

If you feel like experimenting with different types of Gujiya fillings all you have to do is think of Indian and other desserts that consist of fillings and use them as inspiration. Some of the Gujiya filling ideas that we’d recommend are halwas made with ingredients like besan, atta or carrot and other desserts like gulab jamun (soaked lightly in sugar syrup). A Gujiya filling that is likely to be very popular with kids is chocolate. We are curious to know what innovating fillings you are using for your gujiyas and would love to hear about it in comments below.
