Paneer Gujiya/samosa

It was our son's birthday on friday. So had a small snack party at home. This is one of the snacks. It is a very quick and easy to make mildly sweet samosa. You can increase the amount of sugar and add nuts, tutty frutties as your wish. I had earlier tried this recipe as pinwheels. You can prepare this and freeze it. Fry it when you've surprise guests.


  1. Paneer - 15 small cubes
  2. Sugar - 3 tbsp
  3. Grated coconut - 2 tbsp
  4. Cashew nuts - 6 nos. (chopped)
  5. Raisins - a few (chopped)
  6. Vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp
  7. Maida (all purpose flour)/Atta - 1 cup
  8. Oil for deep frying
  9. Butter - 2 tsp
  10. Salt - 2 pinches
  11. Water required to make dough

  • Mix together maida, salt and melted butter. Add enough water to make a non-sticky dough.
  • Crumble paneer well
  • Mix together all ingredients from 2 to 6 very thoroughly.
  • Roll out the dough into small circles (poori size)
  • Put a spoon full of paneer filling in it and fold over into a half moon. Lock the sides. Give designs with fork. I used a mould to make this. (You get different moulds in market) (At this stage you can freeze it and fry as required)

  • Heat 1/2 cup oil in thick bottomed vessel
  • Deep fry until golden brown.
