Khoya Gujiya using Bread

Khoya gujiya using bread is a twist to the traditional Gujiya recipe as it uses bread, yet it tastes absolutely delicious!


For Stuffing:

  • 1 Cup khoya/ mawa
  • 1/4th Cup sliced almonds, pistachios and cashew nuts
  • 2 Drops of kewra or any essence – optional
  • 1/4th Cup powdered sugar

For Cover:

  • Around 12 white bread slices
  • Oil or ghee for frying


To make the stuffing:

  • Take 1 cup khoya/mava (reduced milk) in a pan and roast till it becomes slightly golden brown in color.
  • Add 1/4 cup chopped cashew nuts, almonds and pistachios to the khoya and mix them well.
  • Once done, take the stuffing out on a plate and let it cool to room temperature.
  • Add 2 drops of Kevra essence and 1/4 cup powdered sugar once the stuffing comes to room temperature. Mix this till everything is well combined.

To make the cover:

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