History of Gujiya


Gujiya or Gujia is a dumpling style dessert course dish having a shell made up of Maida flour and well stuffed with various versions and most common among them is khoya stuffed Gujiya. This is an Indian originated dish and it is popular in various parts of the same country such as Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan etc. and specially prepared on the festivals and two major festivals Holi and Diwali celebrated in North India are fully incomplete without making them.
Gujiyas can also be sometimes spelled out as gujhia or purukiya. The classical version of this dish contains a stuff of semolina well bonded with sugar powder and khoya along with some dry fruits. Nowadays after the evaluation of globalization, this stuff has various available versions such as fruit gunjiya, anjeer gunjiya and much more.
If I describe you physical version of Gujia then it is just a replica of samosa but a samosa has a fixed shape but a Gujiya may have different shapes. There exist many other dishes which are quite similar to our Gujiya such as Neureos, which is a Christmas dish and can be easily found in Goa. It is a flaky pastry loaded with a sweet filling.
Now let us start making yummy and delicious Gujias. There are many famous practices for making Gunjiya but as I said its traditional form is a khoya Gunjiya. So we will learn that practices first of all, in this practice we fry our khoya or mawa then we add semolina, sugar powder and dry fruits such as almonds, cashews or resins or anyone else. Since it is mostly made on festival occasions then instead of adding khoya we use condensed milk.
