How to Make Baked Mawa Gujiya

  • For the pastry, sift the flour into a bowl and rub in Nutralite Classic with your fingertips till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add one-fourth cup and one tablespoon of cold water and knead into a stiff dough.
  • Cover with a piece of damp muslin and set aside for fifteen minutes.
  • For the filling, heat a non-stick pan; add the khoya and sauté for three minutes or till the fat separates. Set aside to cool.
  • Add the figs, dates, cashew nuts, almonds and walnuts, and mix well. Divide into twelve equal portions.
  • Divide the dough into twelve equal portions and shape into balls.
  • Roll out each ball into a puri.
  • Place one portion of the stuffing on one half of the puri, lightly moisten the edges, fold the other half over the stuffing and press the edges to seal.
  • Pinch the edges to make a design.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease the baking tray with Nutralite Classic and brush some Nutralite Classic on gujiyas.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Serve.
