2. How to make Filling

Recipe for the Filling-


Mawa/ khoya- 200 grams
Dessicated Coconut- 4 tablespoon 
Castor Sugar- 1/2 cup
Almonds- 10-12 chopped 
Cashew- 10-12 chopped
Pistachios- 10-12 chopped
Chironji- 2 tablespoon 
Green Cardamom- 6-7 (Only seeds, crushed)
Saffron strands- 1 teaspoon 
Thandai powder- 2 tablespoon 
Ghee/ Clarified butter- 1 teaspoon 
Milk- as needed (optional)
Dried Rose petals and Silver Varq- To Garnish 


We will start by crumbling the Mawa.

Heat a non stick or heavy bottom pan. Put crumbled mawa in the pan. Keep the heat on low.

Keep stirring the mawa. It will start melting.

Cook the khoya properly until it releases fat and becomes bit brown.

It will take about 10 minutes to roast the mawa.

Take it out in a bowl and let it come to room temperature.

Meanwhile, in a pan add ghee and roast all the nuts, crushed Cardamom seeds, saffron and coconut.

You just have to roast them for 3-4 minutes.

Mix the roasted nuts in the roasted mawa.

When the mixture comes to room temperature add in the sugar and mix everything well.

(If you will add sugar in the hot mix, it will start melting)

If you feel that the stuffing is dry then add few teaspoons of warm milk.

(1 or 2 tablespoon will be enough)

Stuffing or filling is ready.


Take a prepared Phyllo cup. Scoop in about 2 tablespoon of filling in the cup.

Garnish with Dried Rose Petals and Silver Varq.

Enjoy the yummy twisty Gujiyas with Family, Friends and Colors!!!!
