Uttar Pradesh - Dahi Gujiya

Dahi Gujiya is another variation to Dahi Bhalla or Dahi Vade. Specialty of these  Dahi Guijiyas is that these gujiyas are stuffed with chopped nuts and khoya or sugar. These gujiyas are made during festivals specially Holi in  Uttar pradesh. Dahi Gujiyas are little tricky to make but little patience will help you get tasty and perfect vadas. I did mess up with few initially but later on got them in perfect shape. 

So these delicacies from Uttar Pradesh goes to day 25 of Mega Marathon theme " Sweets and Snacks".


Udad dal 1 cup
Raisins 1 tbsp
Almonds chopped 1 tbsp
Cashew nuts chopped 1 tbsp
Sugar 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Curd 1 cup
Green chutney 1 tbsp
Sweet chutney 1 tbsp
Chopped cilantro 1 tsp
Chaat masala 1 tsp
Oil for deep frying.


Wash and soak dal over night or for at least 6 hours.
Drain the water and grind to smooth paste with out adding water.
Add salt to taste and mix well.
In a small bowl add chopped nuts and sugar, mix.
Take a wet cloth or a zip lock.
Spray little water on the zip lock and take a table spoon full of batter and flatten with your palms.
Make sure your hands are wet.
Add a teaspoon full of nuts filling in the center as shown in the picture.

Slowly lift the zip lock from one size to cover the filling to give it a gujiya shape.
Slowly remove the gujiya and drop it in the hot oil to fry.
Fry all the gujiyas till nice and crisp.
Remove and drop them in a bowl of water.
Soak for 10 minutes and slowly squeeze to remove excess water.
Now dip all the gujiyas in curd  and leave aside for 5 minutes.
Just before serving place the gujiyas in a serving plate, add some green chutney, sweet chutney and chaat masala on top.

Awesome presentation Sushma. My friend gave me the tip of kneading the batter which helped me in making them.
