Gujiya Recipe | How to make Khoya Gujiya | Khova Garjalu (Holi Special Recipe)

Hi friends, thank you all for visiting my website and @EATeasyvegrecipe youtube channel. Today's recipe is gujiya or khova garjalu or karanji. Gujiya or karanji or kajjikayalu are made during festivals like Holi and Diwali across India. Gujiya is a sweet dumpling, stuffed with khoya, dry coconut and dry fruits. The stuffings or fillings are slightly different from one region to the other. It has a crispy and flaky outer layer and stuffing inside. To get the shape of gujiyas, a mould is available in the markets nowadays, or else we can get it online also. Without the mould also we can shape them easily. Gujiyas are made best when they are fried in hot oil in a low flame. And some people dip in sugar syrup after frying. But I found that is too much sweet so I do not dip them sugar again.
