Remove extra dough. Open the mould, take out gujiya keep in a plate. Likewise roll out , stuff and prepare all gujiyas. Keep in plate.

Heat ghee to fry the gujiyas, keep it medium hot. Put one gujiya to fry and check, when frying reduce flame. Put as many gujiyas as they fit in the wok. Once roasted from beneath, flip them.

Sumptuous, Sooji mawa gujiya's are ready As the gujiyas cool down, keep in an air tight container, and relish it for 15 days.

Suggestions : 

  • To make Kasaaar/ Stuffing roast all the ingredients well.
  • Do not knead the dough to soft or too stiff. It should be such so that is rolled out nicely even without dry flour or ghee. 
  • While filling the kasaar be very cautious, else the gujiya will split open. Fill the kasaar in the center of the poori and not reach the edges else it will not stick and gradually open while frying, all the kasaar will spread in oil.
  • Make sure there are no nail marks or spoon marks on the gujiya. 
  • If the Gujiya opens while frying immidiately take it out from the wok fry it at last. By doing so the Ghee will not be spoilt.
  • If desired make the kasaar in lot and keep it in refrigerator. Within 15 to 20 days whenever you get time knead dough and make gujiyas. If 2 to 3 people make gujiyas then approximately 1 kg of gujiyas can be made at once.
  • After adding moen to the refined flour bind and check it. It should be binded well. 
  • Moen is taken 1/4 the quantity of flour.
  • You can use boora instead of sugar. 
  • Roll out the pooris evenly.
  • Rather than rolling out the pooris for the gujiya one by one, roll out 5 to 6 pooris at once and stuff them.
  • The lower part of the poori stays a bit moist, so it sticks well.
  • To make Gujiyas from the leftover cutting, grease handswith water smoothen the dough and make the gujiyas. 
  • Serve the kasaar to kids, they will relish it, else keep it in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 days and make it anytime.
