Gulgule are deep-fried dumplings prepared with whole wheat flour, sugar, ghee and flavored with coconut, cardamom seeds, saffron, etc. These are crisp from outside and soft from inside. Super easy, simple and quick to make, if you know the ratios of the ingredients correctly! Gulgule recipe has a lot of significance on the festivals such as Karwa Chauth. Other than that, it is sweet to be liked by the kids or even grownups, for instance, me. Believe me, I don’t do this with my favorite pakodas also, but when I fry Gulgule, I keep munching these while frying. The first batch never goes out of the kitchen. It always lands in my tummy. Do make it for Karwa Chauth this time or for your kids on Diwali. They will love it and so will you.
Kids don’t have a sweet tooth, at least most of the ones I have seen, they would not eat any dessert or sweet. Yeah, they would love to munch on some chocolates, etc. If your kids also like chocolaty desserts, on the blog, there are a number of these which are sure to please the little ones. These are chocolate truffles, chocolate dipped Oreos, cake pops, eggless chocolate mug cake, etc.
Flours: Gulgule is prepared using whole wheat flour. I further add little rice flour for the crispiness. You can also add in little semolina or even khus khus adds a very good flavor to gulgule.
Sugar: Most of the gulgule recipes use jaggery/gud. I like to make gulgule with sugar. Further, it is an absolutely fuss-free recipe and no sugar syrup etc is prepared. All the ingredients are simply combined and then gulgule is fried.
Yogurt, milk, water: Yogurt adds softness to gulgule. Further saffron is soaked in milk and added to the gulgule batter. I have used water to make the batter for gulgule. You can also use milk instead of water.
Ghee: Please do not use oil to make gulgule recipe. The flavor of ghee adds so much to gulgule.
Gulgule is an easy and quick dessert. There are other desserts/sweets too which are super simple and can be fixed in no time. Fruit curd has to top the list of easy and quick desserts. Likewise, atta halwa is absolutely delish and is ready quickly. These and many more such desserts can be checked here.
Make gulgule for Karwa Chauth. Enjoy these gulgule as dessert.
