GUJIA: Happy Holi

Holi hai

To start with don’t forget to go through our Granny’s legendary tips: https://www.facebook.com/missfoodies101/posts/922526927863506

We are sure they will help in playing a colourful and safe Holi 🙂

What we have on our menu today is a must have and super famous dish around this festival. As our naughty munchkins are growing big, they are getting even stronger taste buds. So we need to treat them with the most called for sweet on Holi. Gujia 🙂

For those who don’t know much about it , here’s a brief:
Gujia is a sweet dumpling made with suji or Maida flour wheat flour and stuffed with khoya. It is common in southern regions of Asia Pakistan, Bangladesh and India.
The packaging of a gujia is very much like that of a samosa, however the gujia has a very distinct shape. The gujhia is filled with a mixture of grated and roasted dry fruits, khoya, coconuts and to add a grainy texture, a little suji (coarse ground wheat flour or semolina).

Now today’s dish is definitely close to our hearts as it comes straight from the kitchen of our mommies and grandmommies. Not just the recipe but also with all their love and warmth. Sakshi made sure that her mom and grand Mom is on the task while we move around to get you these beautiful clicks 😉

So we seem to be drooling over these and so do our kids. While we dive into the ocean of gujias this Holi you take a look on this yummy recipe straight from our Mom’s kitchen 😀

INGREDIENTS
For the Dough:
1kg Refined flour
200g Refined oil
Water
For the filling:
1/2 kg Khoya
400g powdered sugar
50g Chironji
100g Melon seeds
100g grated coconut
Making gujia pastry:
  1. Take the all purpose flour in a bowl.
  2. Heat ghee in a small pan or bowl. Pour the ghee on the flours.
  3. Rub the ghee with the flours, with your fingertips to form a bread crumb like texture.
  4. Then add water in parts and begin to knead. The amount of water needed will depend on the quality and texture of the flour.
  5. Knead the dough till firm. cover the dough with a moist cloth and keep aside for 30 minutes.
 
Making gujia stuffing:
  1. Crumble and grate the khoya/mawa.
  2. Put a pan in low flame and add the crumbled or grated khoya.
  3. Stir the khoya continuously on a low heat.
  4. cook the khoya, till it begins to gather around itself. Switch off the flame and keep the pan down. Let the khoya stuffing cool down completely.
  5. Then add powdered sugar, grated coconut, melon seeds and Chironji seeds. Better to seive the powdered sugar if there are lumps.
  6. Mix everything well and keep the stuffing aside. Check the taste and add more sugar if you prefer.
Assembling and Making gujia:
 
  1. Divide the dough into two parts.
  2. Make a medium log of each part and slice it into equal parts.
  3. Roll each part in your palms to make balls and place all the balls in the same bowl. Cover with a moist kitchen towel.
  4. Roll each ball with the rolling pin to a small circle having 4 to 5 inches diameter.
  5. With your fingertip, apply water all over the circumference edge.
  6. Place about 1 tbsp or 1.5 tbsp of the khoya filling on one side of the circle, keeping edges empty. Don’t add too much of stuffing as then its difficult to shape them and the gujiya may break in the oil.
  7. Carefully, bring together both the edges and join. gently press the edges.
  8. It is best to make pleated design at the edges. This way the stuffing does not come out while frying and the gujias look good too. Just keep on folding and twisting the edges till the end.
  9. Prepare gujias this way and arrange them on a plate or tray. cover the guijyas with a moist napkin so that the dough does not dry out.
Frying:
  1. Heat oil for deep frying in a kadai or pan.
  2. First test the temperature of oil, before frying. Add a small piece of the dough in the oil. If the dough comes up gradually, then the oil is ready. If the dough sits at the bottom, the oil is still cold. If the piece of dough comes up briskly and quickly, the oil is too hot.
  3. Gently slide the gujiyas in oil. Just add a few pieces and don’t overcrowd at a time depending on the size of the pan/kadai, you can fry 4 to 5 gujias at a time.
  4. Turn them over carefully as fry the other side. Deep fry till the gujias have become golden.
  5. Drain on kitchen paper tissues. Fry mawa gujias this way and once they are cooled completely, store them in an air-tight box.

Happy Holi friends. May you have a colorful and foodie Holi 🙂

Cheers

Vanilla Mug Cake – Happy Father’s Day

He is brave, he is funny 

yet wise 

In his simplicity 

His honesty lies 

He is inspiring, he is humble

Corrects you when you fumble 

He guides you always

wants you to rise 

He acts all cool 

But carefully spies 

Spies to keep you on the right way

He may get troubled to keep you happy

But he wouldn’t ever say

Wants you to be smart and selfless 

He is the one 

Who takes you out of the mess 😉

He is a friend he is a guide 

It’s on his strong shoulders 

You would have had the best horse ride 😉

He considers responsibilities before his will 

His duties before his dreams 

He will not let go of his smile

No matter how tired he seems 

He is courageous but watchful 

Watchful so that you learn

Wisdom is what 

He wants you to earn 

He treats his daughter like a princess 

His son like a star 

He holds the family together 

And doesn’t let go anyone far

He is one- of -a-kind

Depth of his love is not easy to find 

He is our hero our Dad

Who truly rules our heart and mind 🙂

How’s it going foodies? We know the heat the killing but we never give up food :). That’s why we are “Missfoodies”. Our today’s blog is specially for the lovely fathers out there!! As I had mentioned in my last blog our latest addition (Parul’s daughter- our little Miss foodie) to the missfoodies family is turning 9 months and it’s her 1st Father’s Day! Wow!! That calls for a celebration, what say peeps!! It surely does. The relation between daughters and fathers is truly special and only daughters can make it out of this world. :). So you guessed it right. To make this day special we have a super easy cake recipe which even fathers can make for their kids and vice versa. :). But we don’t even want our fathers to be binge eating and get into that indulgence!! Well to satisfy their sweet tooth but to keep the portion size in check, we made this yummy and easy Vanilla Mug Cake! This little cake is moist, delicious and just perfect to satisfy those sweet jitters!!

You can top it up with just anything that you feel like. Be it gems, chocolate shavings, icing. It can be really creative and according to your wish! So go ahead scratch your brain make that best cake. All is takes it is just 90 seconds in the microwave and you will have a little mug o’ heaven :). One of the most important tips I can offer if you’re going to make this cake is to make sure that your mug is at least 14 ounces or it may “bubble” over while baking in the microwave. Watch that mug closely!! If you use a big enough mug there’s nothing to worry about. Our cake took up about 3/4 of the cup, which was perfect. So try on this easy peasy and the quickest cake recipe we have ever tried. And trust me it just comes out perfect. We couldn’t believe ourselves until we took the first bite! It was marvellous!

We did not add the icing because it was sweet enough without it but you can always pour some of it to make it more richer and creamier! So if you haven’t planned for ur daddy as yet, then go ahead and surprise him with this simple and quicky recipe! We leave you with the beautiful poem as you must have seen above written by Parul from our Princess’s side for her ‘My daddy strongest’.

So dont wait and start to bake 🙂 Have a great day!!!

Cheers!!!
