  • Add about 1 Tbsp of the filling on one side of the poori and seal by folding both the edges to make a half moon-shaped structure. You can use a little water while sealing the edges.
  • Twist the edges to form a design pattern and repeat the procedure with the remaining dough.
  • Now bake the Gujiyas in a preheated oven for 25 minutes at 180 degrees C.
