Baked Gujiyas anyone?
For the dough
- ½ cup wheat flour
- ½ cup ragi flour
- ½ cup Water
For the filling
- ½ cup mawa
- ½ cup palm jaggery
- ½ cup desiccated coconut
- Poppy seeds
- Cardamom powder
- Mix the wheat flour, ragi flour, some melted butter 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.
