Baked millet gujia recipe makes for a wonderful treat. Gujias are sweet pastries popular in the Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan. They are very similar to samosas and commonly made of refined wheat four. This version, however, calls for wheat flour and foxtail millet flour. While samosas call for a spicy filling, gujias call for a filling comprising khoa, coconut, and jaggery among many other ingredients. Try making some gujias for special occasions or to simply have as a snack.

Health Benefits

One of the primary ingredients in this gujia dish is the millet. Millet is a type of grass that is grown all over the world; it is especially popular in developing countries due to its hardiness. Millet can survive in some pretty tough conditions and has a lot of health benefits. Regularly consuming millet can help prevent diabetes, protect the heart from disease, decrease cancer risks, improve respiratory health, and even boost the immune system.
