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.

Fry khoya in a pan till brown, add coconut, chironji, raisins,cardamon  and powdered sugar to it. Keep this mixture aside which be used as filling for Ghujiya later.

Take maida in a bowl , add hot  oil/ghee to it.  Rub with your hand and mix well.Knead with water to a smooth dough. cover with wet cloth for 1/2 an hour.

Make sealant of maida and water

Now take small ball of this dough and roll very thin small chapati with the rolling pin .take katori to make round chapati
Place the filling mixture in between.  Apply sealant on half side of chapati. Fold and seal it tightly  use fork to seal it and design also. use ghujiya mould available in market.

 Prepare all the ghujiyas and cover it with thin wet cloth.

Heat oil in a pan. Do not over heat. Fry ghujiya till light brown and they are ready.
