Karjikai (Kannada) is a sweet dumpling recipe of Indian origin. It is also known as Gunjiya, Gughara, Pedakiya, Karanji, Kajjikayalu, Somas, Karjikayi. It can be prepared using suji i.e., semolina, or maida i.e., all-purpose flour, we can also use wheat flour too but we won’t get the crispy texture. And then for stuffing, we need grated dry coconuts, powdered jaggery, cardamom powder, and roasted channa (powder).

Traditionally these yummy desserts are made with maida and stuffed with khoya and dry fruits. And then deep-fried in ghee and dipped in sugary syrup.

The shape of the gujia looks like a half-moon. It is specially made during Holi, and Deewali festivals in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujrat, and Bihar. In Karnataka, it is prepared during the Varamaha Lakshmi festival and Ganesha festivals.

For stuffing, we can make changes according to our taste, so here I have added jaggery instead of sugar, and even we can add chopped dry fruits, and tutti frutti also.
