dry fruit gujiya recipe by meenu gupta | yourfoodfantasy

Dry fruit Gujiya

If you have liked my Khoya Gujiya, here I am presenting the recipe of colourful Dryfruit Gujiya. As the name suggests, this gujiya has got dry fruit stuffing instead of khoya stuffing. The outer crust remains same (as mava guiya) and one more addition we here to this gujiya, that is of glazing with sugar syrup as the final step of making this gujiya.

Personally I like this gujiya more compared to the khoya gujiya. I still remember in my childhood days, when my mother use to make both types of gujiya, me and my brother both always attacked on dry fruit gujiyas primarily and once they were finished in just 2-3 days then only we used to focus our attention to those khoya gujiya. Because of their colourful appearance they always attracted us more. 

These gujiya can be made without using colour. I use colour in this because my mother used to add it. Reason of her adding colour was because she use to make both type of gujiya on one single day prior to holi so she can differentiate among the two types. So this is solely your choice to add colour or not. 

Here comes the recipe:

Prepration Time: 35-40 minutes

Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

serving: 30-35 pieces
