Chocolate Gujiya

Sweet dumplings made of flour and stuffed with chocolate and nuts. Traditionally, gujiya is stuffed with semolina or khoya/mawa (dried milk) along with the nuts and eaten in India on festivals. I have added chocolate to this recipe to give it an interesting twist. Crispy from outside and gooey from inside, these sweet treats are definitely going to delight your taste-buds!

Time: 45 minutes


Serves: 4

Save recipe


  1. 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  2. 1/2 cup khoya
  3. 1 tablespoon chopped nuts (almonds and cashew nuts)
  4. 3 tablespoons caster sugar or to taste
  5. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  6. 2 tablespoons ghee
  7. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  8. Oil for deep-frying
  9. A pinch of salt


  1. Take the all purpose flour in a bowl and add a pinch of salt. Melt 2 tablespoons ghee, add it to the flour and rub it with your fingertips. Start adding little water at a time and knead into a smooth dough. Cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon unsalted butter in a pan. Add chopped nuts and fry them for 30 seconds while stirring continuously. Add khoya and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring continuously. Add the dark chocolate chips and mix well. Cook for another 2-3 minutes till melted butter oozes out of the mixture. Take the mixture out in a bowl and add caster sugar. Mix well and keep it aside.
  3. Divide the dough into 2 portions and roll into medium thick roti. Cut into circles using a cookie cutter or back of a small bowl with sharp edges.
  4. Hold one of the circles in hand, place a spoonful of stuffing, fold it and press the sides to give it the shape of a gujiya. Crimp the edges of the gujiya with the help of a fork. Repeat this process for making gujiyas with rest of the dough.
  5. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Fry the stuffed gujiyas until golden brown. Let them cool before garnishing them.
  6. Take 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on medium heat for 1 minute or until the chocolate chips are completely melted. Drizzle the melted chocolate on the gujiyas with the help of a spoon.
  7. Eat them with chai or enjoy them as a dessert.

Note: Chocolate Gujiya stays well in an air-tight container for 4-5 days outside the refrigerator. Store them in the refrigerator if the weather is too hot.
