Makes: 20-22 gujiyas
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 30 min

Stuffing:

  • 1 12oz stick of Nanak Khoya
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cardamom Powder (7-8 fresh cardamom pods)
  • 2 tablespoons Slivered Almonds
  • 2 tablespoons Chopped cashews
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 sheet store bought Pie dough (I get the Trader Joe's brand)

Glazing Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped almonds & Cashews for garnish after glazing
  1. Make Stuffing: Microwave Khoya for 1-2 minutes, in 30 seconds increments to make khoya easy to crumble. Heat non stick skillet/pan on medium heat. Crumble khoya in to the pan. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, press down and break it in smaller pieces. Keep pressing till khoya becomes soft, consistency of a soft dough. (it should be pliable). Turn off the heat. Add chopped nuts, coconut powder and cardamom powder. Mix well and allow to cool off for a few minutes (4-5). Add sugar and mix well. The stuffing is ready.
