Instructions
 

  • Take scrapped coconut in a grinder and add 2 tablespoon of milk, make a smooth paste.
  • Now take the coconut paste and sugar in wok mix well and heat the wok. Stir continuously till the sugar melts.
  • The mixture will become sticky in nature, at that time add condensed milk mix well.
  • Now the mixture will leave the sides of the wok that means it is ready. Add roasted cashew in it and mix. If you wish you can also add a pinch of cardamom powder. Allow the mixture to cool.
  • For the pastry shell, sieve flour, baking soda and salt in a plate. Add ghee in that mixture and make a dough just like poori (add water as required). Allow to rest the dough by covering with a damp cloth for half an hour.
  • Divide the dough into equal lemon size balls. Roll each ball like poori and put coconut stuffing in the middle and close it such a way it should be half circle or crescent in shape.
  • Seal the edges properly and using a fork secure the sealed edges by making imprints of fork. Do this step for remaining balls.
  • Now take the gujiyas in a baking tray (greased with little ghee) and brush them ghee on both the sides.
  • Put them in preheated (180 degree C for 10 minutes) for 15 to 20 minutes. In between, turn the other side and brush little ghee.
  • Once they are properly baked brush little milk on the gujiyas and bake for 1 to 2 minutes to get nice golden colour.
  • After cooling, store them in airtight container.
