To make the stuffing:

To make the cover:
  1. Take two slices of fresh and soft bread and cut their sides off.
  2. Overlap one edge of each bread by applying some water and roll it thin using a rolling pin.
  3. Take out a roundel (around 4″ diameter) out of the rolled sheet using a cookie cutter or a lid.
  4. Now, place some stuffing on one side of the sheet and apply some water along the edge. Fold the other half of the sheet and pinch the edges together.
  5. Make a design along the edge by pinching and folding it.
  6. Similarly make all the gujiyas and keep them covered with a damp cloth.
  7. Make a slurry by mixing 1 tbsp water with 2 tbsp water and apply a thin coat on each side of the gujiya.
  8. Heat some oil or ghee in a pan and fry the gujiyas on a medium flame till they become golden brown in color.
  9. Your bread gujiyas are now ready to be served. Enjoy!
