To make 20 Gujias
Flour: 250 grams
Khoya: 500 grams
Raisins: a few
Almonds: 100 grams (finely chopped)
Cooking oil: 3 tablespoon for kneading the dough and a considerable amount
for deep-frying the Gujias
Water: 100 ml
Sugar: 250 grams
Mix the oil and flour thoroughly so that it reaches a binding consistency.
Add some water and knead the entire mixture, lightly. When it forms a soft
dough, set it aside and cover it with a damp cloth. Fry the khoya in cooking
oil till it becomes light brown and then mix the sugar in it completely. Add
almonds and raisins and fry for a few more minutes. Remove this from the
stove and let it cool. Make small thick chapattis out of the kneaded dough.
Fill half of each chapatti with the khoya mixture and fold the chapatti
over, sealing the sides of the chapatti, to ensure that the khoya is safely
wrapped within. Make the sealing secure by pinching the edges with your
fingertips. Deep-fry these gujias until they becomes light golden brown,
keeping the flame low. Take out the gujias and place them on brown paper or
newspaper for the oil to drain away. Serve hot or store it in an airtight
container to feed your loved ones on Rakhi day.

Drop saffron strands in a cup of milk and set it aside. Heat Rava with ghee

add sugar and stir for 3 to 10 mins. Now pour on the saffron-flavoured milk

oil and make small balls out of it. For decoration, you can either add one
dry fruit each in the middle of each laddu or cover it with silver foil.
