How to Make Healthy Gujiyas

  • Mix the wheat flour, ragi flour, some melted Nutralite and water in a bowl and knead into dough.
  • Next, roast poppy seeds and the desiccated coconut separately on a pan. Keep it aside to cool down.
  • Once cooled, grind the poppy seeds and coconut together in a mixer grinder.
  • Then, mix this ground mixture with mawa, jaggery and cardamom powder. The filling is ready.
  • Now, take the dough and make small round balls. Roll out each ball to make a small round roti.
  • Next, place a spoonful of the filling on each of the rotis.
  • Fold them into half and seal the open side by softly folding the edges.
  • Next, preheat the oven to 180 degrees for about 8 minutes.
  • Place all the gujiyas on the baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Now, remove the tray from the oven and turn all the gujiyas over, to cook the other side. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and let them cool.
