For the dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/2 cup ghee or unsalted butter
  • Water as required

For the filling:

  • 1 cup mawa (khoya)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 2 tbsp chopped cashews
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder

For frying:

    • Ghee or vegetable oil
    • For garnishing:
    • Powdered sugar


  • To make the dough, take 2 cups of all-purpose flour (maida) in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of ghee or unsalted butter to it.
  • Rub the flour and ghee/butter between your palms to form a crumbly mixture.
  • Add water little by little and knead the mixture to form a smooth and firm dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
  • To make the filling, crumble 1 cup of mawa (khoya) in a non-stick pan.
  • Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to the pan and mix well.
  • Keep stirring the mixture on low heat until the sugar melts and combines well with the mawa.
  • Add 1/4 cup of desiccated coconut to the pan and mix well.
  • Add 2 tablespoons each of chopped almonds and cashews to the pan.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of raisins and 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom powder to the pan.
  • Mix all the ingredients well and cook the mixture for 2-3 minutes until it becomes thick and dry. Keep the mixture aside to cool down.
  • Take the dough and divide it into small lemon-sized balls.
  • Roll each ball into a small disc of about 3-4 inches diameter.
  • Place a spoonful of the filling mixture on one side of the disc.
  • Fold the other half of the disc over the filling to form a half-moon shape. Seal the edges of the gujiya by pressing them with a fork.
  • Prepare all the gujiyas in the same way.
  • Heat ghee or vegetable oil in a deep frying pan.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully slide a few gujiyas into the oil.
  • Fry the gujiyas on medium heat until they become golden brown and crispy.
  • Remove the gujiyas from the pan using a slotted spoon and drain the excess oil on a tissue paper.
  • Allow the gujiyas to cool down to room temperature.
  • Once the gujiyas are cool, sprinkle some powdered sugar on them and serve them.
  • Your delicious Mawa Gujiyas are now ready to be enjoyed!
