No Sugar Filling For Gujiya – Holi Special

Holi is coming, everyone is busy making “Gujiya”, the popular Holi sweet. Gujia is a sweet dumpling made with Maida and stuffed with Mawa, Rava, and Dry fruits. Making Gujiya is very time-consuming but without it Holi is incomplete. Today I am sharing an easy recipe to make Gujiya stuffing which takes less time and it has no sugar. All sweetness comes from dates, dried apricot, raisins, and jaggery.
