First of all Happy Holi everyone. Holi is a festival of colors and there few different types of Holi played in India. So bring the tradition back of playing Holi with flowers which is know as phoolo wali Holi. During Holi this sweet is vey common. The preparation method of a typical gujiya/pedakiya is rather similar to that of a samosa, but the gujiya/pedakiya looks like an empanada. Shaped like a half moon, the gujiya or pedakiya is filled with a sweet mixture of grated and roasted dried fruits, khoa, grated coconut, and a hint of suji to lend it a grainy texture. As my other recipe wchich requires deep frying I choose to air fry. Please Note: macros mentioned per piece.
