1)Gujiyas can be store upto a week. Store this in fridge in a air tight container.
2)You can make gujiyas with whole all purpose flour, or whole wheat flour.
3)You can add dried coconut into the mixture.
4)You can use sooji instead of mawa, but i like the taste of mawa in gujiyas.
5)After frying, you can dip the gujiyas in sugar syrup for making the outer part shiny and sweet.
