Matar Karanji/ Gujiya is an indulgent Maharashtrian snack made using seasonal fresh green peas. Green peas and fresh coconut along with a few other spices are stuffed in a crisp flour pastry and then deep fried till golden brown. Matar Karanji is usually served as a tea time snack but you can make mini, bite sized karanjis and serve them as a party appetizer or snack.
Spicy Matar karanji tastes great on its own but you can serve them with Raw Mango & Coconut Chutney or any chutney of choice at your Diwali or Holi parties
