Holi is the messiest festival out of all the festivals that we celebrate. Well, let us accept the fact; when we think of Holi, two things that pop up in our head are Gujiya and Bhaang. Although it is a festival of colours and cheerfulness, it also revitalizes the happy faces with scrumptious yet mouth-watering Gujiya - a crescent-shaped deep fried sweet which is filled with even sweeter filling.
Traditional Gujiya is made up of Mawa but nowadays, we have a modern version of everything then why not give a shot for our food segment? There are other creative and lip-smacking variations of Gujiya that everyone will love undoubtedly.
So keeping in mind Holi madness, here are the variants of Gujiya that will leave you spoilt for choices.
To all the chocolate lovers out there, you have got the best of both worlds. Melted chocolate drizzling into the sweet bags of scrumptiousness. Ahh, amazing is the only word I want to use right now!
The festival of colours is incomplete without Bhaang and Gujiya. The best part is when you can mix both of them. Give your sweet tooth a flavourful rush by adding Bhaang along with Khoya in Gujiya.
Nutella Gujiya! Oh yes, you read it right. Nutella goes well with everything. You can boost the richness of the old-fashioned holi dish by adding Nutella to it. What else do you need?
