This year we wanted to create a collection inspired by the myriad of colours that are deeply ingrained in our minds! Our halwais have prepared treats that will instantly create a colourful sensation in your heart and make your celebration extra vibrant. We have some treats that are inspired by your favourite holi traditional treats and some you wouldn’t expect that’ll instantly colour your heart. Amongst the classics is the Holi essential ‘Gujiya’
It’s rather hard to imagine a Holi without crispy gujiyas. In fact most of our memories of Holi are centred around sinking our teeth into warm plates of indulgent gujiya with gulaal smeared cheeks. Gujiyas are essentially sweet crispy dumplings made with refined flour that is stuffed with a filling of khoya and nuts.The dumpling is then pleated and fried in ghee. Once fried it is steeped in sugar syrup. Now, there’s often a debate about where one can find the best gujiyas in India - the options of where one can find gujiyas during Holi is endless but the best gujiyas in India is a true debate. If you had to ask us what our definition of a good gujiya is we’d say, the filling definitely can’t be too dry, it definitely needs to be rich and indulgent, needs to bind well, needs to be fried perfectly golden-brown and definitely needs to stay crispy even later.
Did we just narrow down your search for the best gujiyas in India? We’re about to do it further. When we decided to recreate the gujiya at Bombay Sweet Shop - we first perfected the traditional form by preparing it multiple times. After he attained the perfect crust - we decided to reimagine the filling. Last year for our second Holi - our filling was a combination of khoya and coconut along with chironji and nuts. This year - we wanted to spread the joy of Holi beyond Mumbai and created a version of the gujiya that can travel to all the cities we now deliver to. So whether you’re smearing your loved one’s face with gulaal in Delhi, glugging down thandai in Bangalore, running from notorious holi loving neighbours in Kolkata or Chennai - the best Gujiyas in India will reach your doorstep.
