Gulgule Recipe | Gulgula | Pua | Mini Indian Doughnuts | with step by step photos and video. An extremely popular sweet and savoury snack recipe made with wheat flour and jaggery. A deep-fried sweet from the North Indian cuisine. These crispy soft and fluffy balls are pretty easy to make.

Gulgule can also be referred to as Pua. In the Punjabi language, this dish is called as pooda or puda. In western Uttar Pradesh this is the first dish that a new bride cooks in the house.  These are also prepared during Pujas or religious rites.  While Mal Pua is a bit flat, Gulgule Pua is in the shape of a Pakoda.

Gulgule Recipe | Gulgula | Pua| Mini Indian Doughnuts | with step by step photos and video. The batter for this recipe is very similar to the malpoa recipe. Perhaps there might be slight variation to the consistency and the batter for this recipe is denser in consistency.

This can be served as a healthy snack recipe. Some people used to add bananas in this recipe also. It is completely optional. The traditional way of making this recipe is with jaggery for the flavour and health aspect. However, you can also use the easier option of sugar for the same purpose. Further, rest the batter for 20 minutes or more for better results.

In addition, I would like to highlight our other snack recipes also. Hope you would like them.
