Recipe for Sugar-free Sweets

Gujjias


Ingredients you need:

  • 1 cup Wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1/2 litre Oil (for frying)


For stuffing:

  • 1 cup Grated coconut ( fresh or dried)
  • Dates puree ( instead of sugar)
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • chopped dried fruits
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 1 tbsp Poppy seeds


How to prepare Gujiya:

  • Combine the salt, flour and ghee, add water and knead the mixture to prepare dough. Cover it with wet cloth and set aside for a while.
  • Soak the dates one night before and y blend them the next day. Your dates puree is prepared to be used instead of sugar. Test its sweetness before mixing it with the dough.
  • For stuffing- cook coconut, date puree milk, chopped dried fruits, cardamom powder and poppy seeds until this mixture becomes dry.
  • Divide the dough into 20-25 small parts and make them into flat round pancakes. Stuff them with a spoon of prepared mixture and fold the pancake  from the centre.
  • You can create the fluted crescent border with a cutter.  Remove the excess dough. Seal the border with little milk or oil.  Keep the raw gujjia aside.
  • In a wok (karahi), heat the oil for 2-3 minutes; make at least 3-4 raw gujjias at a time and fry them until they turn golden brown.
  • Remove the gujjias in a paper bowl and let them cool. After 20 mins, you can savour the sugar-free gujjias. Store them in an airtight container.
