How to make Gulugula

Making Gulugula is very simple and does not require any fancy ingredients or equipment. All you need is a mixing bowl, a spoon, a frying pan, and a slotted spoon. Here are the basic steps to make Gulugula:

  • In a large bowl, take some jaggery and water and whisk well to dissolve the jaggery. You can also use sugar instead of jaggery if you prefer.
  • Add wheat flour, semolina, fennel seeds, cardamom powder, salt, and baking soda to the jaggery mixture and mix well to form a smooth batter. The batter should be slightly thicker than a pakoda batter, but not too thick or too thin.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot enough, drop small portions of the batter into the oil using a spoon or your fingers. You can make them as big or small as you like but do not overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry the Gulugula on both sides until they turn golden and crisp. Drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Serve hot or warm with Ghuguni or Aloo Kasa. You can serve it with some tea or coffee, or enjoy them as they are.
