Matar gujiya is a perfect tea-time snack. Patties are filled with spicy peas stuffing. A crispy cover with a spicy filling.

Traditionally matar Karanji/ Gujiya is an indulgent Maharashtrian snack made using seasonal fresh green peas. Green peas and fresh coconut along with a few other spices are stuffed in a crisp flour pastry and then deep-fried till golden brown. Moreover, I personally don’t like coconut in matar gujiya that’s why I did not use it. However, if you like the coconut flavour then you can add coconut too. Matar Karanji is usually served as a tea time snack but you can make mini, bite-sized karanjis and serve them as a party appetizer or snack.

How To Make A Dough For Gujiya

Sift the flour and rub in the ghee. Knead to make a stiff dough, cover with a moist cloth and keep aside.

To Make matar filling:

Heat the ghee in a wok add the cumin seeds, ginger, and green chillies, sauté for 2-3 sec add the green peas and all the dry masala.
When the mixture is dry enough mash a little and transfer mixture into a flat dish to cool.

Finally, I would like to suggest a few recipes from my blog
