Dahi Gujiya is a famous chat item from Uttar Pradesh. It’s similar to the dahi vada but is made in Gujiya shape and filled with goodies to give that extra flavour. I was initially a little skeptical about adding cashews, raisins, ginger and pepper as the filling because of so many different flavours blending together. But once we tried them, loved the flavours.

Made Dahi Gujiya as part of our sweets and snacks mega marathon week 4 with mandatory list of foods. Today is day 7 of the mandatory list.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Soak Time : 5-6 hours

Cook Time : 3-4 minutes per batch

Serves : 4


Urad dal : 1 cup

Hing : A pinch

Salt: 1 teaspoon

Green Chutney : as per taste

Sweet Chutney : as per taste

Curd/Yogurt : 2 cups beaten

Red chilli powder : as per taste

Fine Sev: as needed

For Filling:

Cashew pieces : 10-12 broken into small pieces

Raisins : 10-12

Ground Black pepper: 1 teaspoon

Grated ginger : 2 teaspoons


Wash and soak urad dal for 5-6 hours. Drain the water and grind the dal to a slightly coarse batter by adding 1-2 teaspoons of water.

Take the batter and knead it really well for 5 minutes so you get a smooth dough.

Take a bowl with water, add hing and salt. Keep it aside.

Heat oil for deep frying.

Take a plastic sheet, oil it a little, take a lemon sized dough ball, with your hands flatten it to a 1/4 inch thick circle.

Add 2 raisins, few pieces of cashews, a little grated ginger and little bit of pepper in the middle of the batter. slowly lift one side of the plastic sheet to help lift the batter and fold it in half like gujiya. Gently press and close the edges.

Slowly drop the 2-3 gujiyas in the oil at a time and cook on both sides till they turn golden brown.

Immediately drop the gujiyas in the salt and hing water.

Wait for 1 hour, squeeze the water. take a bowl, add 2 -3 gujiyas, add beaten curd, green chutney, sweet chutney, little bit of chilli powder and sev.

Serve immediately.
