Everyone in India has that one Bihari friend, whom they tease entire year round but raid their backpack as soon as that friend comes back from the vacation. Even though Purukiya/ Gujiya is made in different forms in other states as well, but no one does Thekua/ Khajur better than Biharis.
Served with love, are Purukiya ( commonly called as Gujiya) & Thekua.
I recently tried making Purukiya at home(first attempt), and like this watercolor painting it turned out better than I expected. I do hope to get better at both cooking and painting, I hope this painting made your Monday sweet. ♥
PS: I am sharing the recipe I found online ( too lazy to type it all :D). Gujiya can have different stuffing. I am sharing the one I found closer to how I like it.
