Chutti time is as enjoyable for the adults as for the kids. Today, when I was collecting my stuff for going back home from college, it started raining. I got wet by the time I reached the parking lot. Same was the condition when I reached home. The rain was pouring so heavily that soon after coming out of the car, I was totally drenched with water. As soon as I entered the house, I saw my daughter and Piku, my cute doggie were enjoying in the rain as well. My daughter pulled me along with her and then trio of us started playing and enjoying the rain together.
Now after such an energetic performance in the rain shower, what will one want?? Unanimously….. some fried stuff. How about gulgule??? Another dance, but this is not rain dance… This is for gulgule??. So I set to work and made the yummiest little doughnuts i.e. gulgule. The name itself is so cute, isn’t it??
Gulgule are round and soft traditional sweet that is made to celebrate some special occasions like rainy day’s festival teej, holi, basdiya, puja, marriage etc. They are so luscious and easy to make, that you don’t need any special occasion to make them. Whenever you feel like, make them and enjoy them.
I’m sending this recipe for my second day of blogging marathon under lunch box theme as it is an appropriate dish during rainy season and hardly there will be any kids who doesn’t like them.
