Gujiya is a very special traditional sweet in north indian celebration.

Ingredients :

Maida- 1 cup
Oil - for deep fry
Sugar powder- 1/4 cup
Chopped cashew - 1 tbsp
Chopped Almond - 1 tbsp
Grated Coconut - 1 cup
Khoya - 1 cup
Milk - 1/4 cup

Heat a kadai and add the khoya and the milk to it.When the milk starts boiling add coconut to it. Mix it well and keep stirring on medium flame. If you want,you can add a few pieces of broken cashew to it. Cook till the mixture turns a little brownish.Remove it from the heat and let it cool for few minutes.Now add the sugar powder to it and mix it well.keep the mixture aside.Now make the dough.mix maida,2 tbs oil and add a little water and knead well.Keep adding little amount of water as not knead a very soft dough as it can cause air trapped inside and the gujiya will be inflated in shape.
Cover the dough with the help of a wet cloth and keep it aside for another 20 minutes to ferment.

After 20 minutes heat oil in a kadai and make medium size balls from the dough and roll them into rotis.Fill the stuffing into one half of the gujiya and moist the edges with a little water and seal the edges and deep fry.While frying,let the remaining balls be covered by the wet cloth otherwise the moisture will dry up and the gujiyas will break. Fry each side until they turn a little brown. Remove them from the heat and drain the excess oil with the help of paper napkin. Decorate the gujiyas with the chopped almond and cashews ans serve.
