as i mentioned earlier, the batter for this goolgoola is very similar to the malpoa recipe. perhaps there might be slight variation to the consistency and the batter for gulgula recipe is denser inconsistency. this is due to the fact that it has to be deep-fried like mini doughnuts. yet the purpose of both the recipes is completely different. malpua is typically made as a dessert, but the gulgule is made more like a dessert snack. for me, the recipe is very similar to the goli baje or mangalore bajji without the hint of sweetness in it. and hence you can serve it as a snack or as dessert depending upon the mood and audience.

furthermore, some more important tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect crispy gulgula recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used the combination of wheat flour with the semolina to make it crispy textured. yet you can experiment it with maida flour or corn flour for the same reason of crispiness and texture. secondly, 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. lastly, i have rested the batter for 30 minutes. but if you have the luxury of more time, you can ferment it for 2 hours for better result.
