Mava (khoya)Ghujiy .......holi sepcial

I am happy to be hosting this challenge. Thanks to Divya for giving me this opportunity.It is my suggestion to al my friends that we all members participate in every event bec it is the main purpose of this event so that we intract with each other and share our views. waiting for ur response.

I am writing Ghujjiya recipe for my south indian friends. I chose this recipe because this March month is the month of Holi festival. In North India, especially in U.P., two dishes are prepared in every household which are: Ghujiya and Gajar (Carrot) ki kanji. I learned this recipe from my friends in Rae-bareli (U.P.). A couple of days before the Holi festival, we all friends used to get together in one house and prepare these dishes. It used to be fun time with friends and their families. Hope you will also like this.
Let me also take this opportunity to wish you all a "Happy and Safe Holi" in advance.
