Festivals are a time when all the Indian vegetarian recipes come alive from the cookbook, into our kitchen. And when you’re looking for a special treat, a bounty of healthy gujiyas should do the trick. A cure for the sweet tooth and a dense filling of nutrition - gujiyas make for a yummy treat, especially on festivals like Holi. We show you how to make it with the perfect balance of healthy goodness and tasty flavours.


What you need to make Healthy Gujiyas

  • For the dough
  • ½ cup wheat flour
  • ½ cup ragi flour
  • Nutralite
  • ½ cup Water
  • For the filling
  • ½ cup mawa
  • ½ cup palm jaggery
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • Poppy seeds
  • Cardamom powder


How to make Healthy Gujjiyas

  1. Mix the wheat flour, ragi flour, some melted Nutralite and water in a bowl and knead into dough.
  2. Next, roast poppy seeds and the desiccated coconut separately on a pan. Keep it aside to cool down.
  3. Once cooled, grind the poppy seeds and coconut together in a mixer grinder.
  4. Then, mix this ground mixture with mawa, jaggery and cardamom powder. The filling is ready.
  5. Now, take the dough and make small round balls. Roll out each ball to make a small round roti.
  6. Next, place a spoonful of the filling on each of the rotis.
  7. Fold them into half and seal the open side by softly folding the edges.
  8. Next, preheat the oven to 180 degrees for about 8 minutes.
  9. Place all the gujiyas on the baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  10. Now, remove the tray from the oven and turn all the gujiyas over, to cook the other side. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes.
  11. Once baked, remove from the oven and let them cool.

The nutrients are packed in the gujiyas, the calories are in count, and it’s a great veg recipe of India – one that perfectly complements the festival of colour! What more, you ask?
