Nutella stuffed dumplings | Nutella gujiya

This recipe of Nutella ( OMG ) stuffed dumplings is actually a continuation of my last post about Gujiya.

This dish is a wonderful example of fusion of conventional Gujiya with Nutella.

Everything in the recipe remains the same except for the filling which is nutella in this case. Hubby dearest calls these dumplings as Nutella Gujiya ( lol ).

Easy and fuss free to make ! A quick sweet for shining and colourful festivals like Diwali ,Christmas ,Holi etc .
