You can also use different type of fillings and make the gujiyas. ( like Kuskus gujiya, Potato halwa, mutton or chicken  kheema gujiyas, vegetable  gujiyas.Atta corn gujiya

Jaleela's tips
You can also freeze the gujiyas before frying them. You can thaw them before frying  and serve them  hot.   For crispiness after frying the gujiya,  don’t close the pot with lid.  Leave it aside for  two hours and let it cool.
