How To make Gujarati Ghari? | Instant Gujarati Ghari Recipe

Gujarati Ghari is a traditional sweet delicacy from the state of Gujarat, India. It is a popular treat often prepared during festivals like Diwali and Uttarayan. Ghari is a rich and indulgent sweet made with a combination of ghee, mawa (khoya), sugar, and various flavorful ingredients. In this recipe, I will guide you through the process of making Gujarati Ghari at home. So let’s get started!

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


For the outer covering:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • A pinch of salt
  • Water, as needed

For the filling:

  • 2 cups mawa (khoya)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron strands (soaked in 2 tablespoons warm milk)
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds and pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped mixed candied fruits (optional)
  • Ghee, for frying

For the garnish:

  • Silver vark (optional)
  • Chopped almonds and pistachios


  • Outer Covering Preparation:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, a pinch of salt, and ghee. Mix well until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Slowly add water little by little and knead to form a soft dough. Cover the dough and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

Filling Preparation:

  • Heat a pan on medium heat and add the mawa (khoya). Cook it, stirring continuously, until it turns slightly golden brown and releases a pleasant aroma.
  • Add the powdered sugar, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, saffron milk, chopped almonds, pistachios, and mixed candied fruits (if using). Mix well and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool.

Ghari Assembly:

  • Divide the dough into small lemon-sized balls. Take one ball and flatten it using your palms to form a small disc.
  • Place about a teaspoon of the prepared filling in the center of the disc. Bring the edges together and seal it tightly, ensuring the filling is completely enclosed.
  • Gently press the stuffed ball to flatten it slightly, taking care not to break it.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining dough and filling.

Frying Ghari:

  • Heat ghee in a deep-bottomed pan or kadai over medium heat.
  • Once the ghee is hot, gently slide 3-4 ghari at a time into the pan. Fry them until they turn golden brown and crisp from both sides.
  • Remove the fried ghari using a slotted spoon and drain excess ghee on a paper towel.

Garnish and Serving:

  • If desired, apply a small piece of silver vark on top of each ghari for an attractive presentation.
  • Garnish with chopped almonds and pistachios while the ghari is still warm.
  • Let the ghari cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container.


Gujarati Ghari is now ready to be enjoyed! This sweet treat is best served with a hot cup of tea or as a dessert after a meal. The rich and aromatic filling wrapped in a crispy outer layer makes it a delightful indulgence.
