Corn Carrot Cabbage Gujiya

Atta (Wheat)  & whole corn kennel  Gujiya (somas)
Magic mingle Kalyani chose the ingredients atta  and corn for special recipes.  Atta (wheat flour) and corn  are very interesting combination to cook with.   I chose the recipe for Gujiya ,   as it suits the best for the  Holi festival .   Gujiya tastes good and its filling is very colorful



Atta  – 2 cup (350 grams)
Maida (all purpose flour) – 25 grams
Sooji (rava)  – 50 grams
Sugar – 2 tspn
Oil (or) butter – 1 tbspn
Salt to taste


Corn + peas+ carrot (grated) cabbage – each ¼ cup

Cumin powder – ½ tspn
Cumin seed – 1 tspn
Coriander leaves (cilantro) – ¼ cup
Chilli powder – ½ tspn
Chopped Onion  - 1
Chopped Tomato – 1  (small)
Turmeric powder – ¼ + ¼  tspn
Garam masala powder – ½ tspn
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tspn
Green chilly – 1
Salt to taste
Lemon juice  - 1 tspn
Oil + little ghee (or) butter– for frying


In a wok, add the grated carrot, peas, and corn.

Add ½ cup water, litte salt, ¼ tspn.  turmeric powder, ¼  tspn. chilli powder and  cook for 5 minutues.
In a tawa, heat the oil.  Add the  cumin seeds.

Add chopped onions and  sauté until it gets golden brown.
 Add ginger garlic paste and  sauté for  2 minutes.
 Add tomato, chili powder, chopped green  chilli, cumin powder, salt , and  mix well and cook for 2 minutes on low heat.
Add chopped coriander leaves, cooked vegetables, and  garam masala.  Stir well and cook for 1 minute on low heat. Transfer to a wide bowl and  let it  cool.

In another wide bowl, mix the  Atta ,   sooji, sugar, oil and  salt.  Prepare a  soft dough with those ingredients.  Cover it with a wet cloth for 1 to 3 hours.

Make small lemon size balls and roll  it in maida , as needed.  Make a the balls in to a flat rotis ( like puris) .  Place the flattened dough in a gujiya maker.  Keep 1 heaped teaspoon of the prepared vegetable - corn masala filling  in the centre .   Now use the  the gujiya maker  to fold  and press it down .  Remove the excess dough .  

 Heat  oil in a pan over medium heat.   Fry all the gujiyas, golden brown.
Serve them hot with ketchup.
 Yummy Gujiyas (somasi, somas,கார்ன் சோமாஸ் ) are ready to eat with Broccoli Soup

 You can also use different type of fillings and make  the gujiyas. ( like Kuskus gujiya, Black & White Seasme seed gujiyas, mutton kheema gujiyas, vegetable  gujiyas.)
