Take one dough ball at a point and roll out into 3 to 4 inch diameter pooris. Place these rolled pooris over a plate.

Stuff the gujiyas

For stuffing the poori, take one poori and place it over the mold. Place 1 to 1.5 tsp prepare stuffing over it. Apply some water on the edges and close the mold. Remove the extra dough and open the mold. Take out the gujiya and place it over a plate. Similarly prepare remaining gujiyas as well.

  • While kneading the dough make sure you add moen in right quantity. If the quantity of ghee is less then gujiyas will turn hard and if the meon gets too much then it will get difficult to make gujiyas and these can splatter while frying.
  • Make sure that the pooris are not thin at the center else they will splatter.
  • Be cautious while stuffing the gujiyas, it should not splatter. If this broken gujiya is dropped in ghee for frying then stuffing can come out and mix into the ghee. After this we will need to strain the while ghee.
