For many Indians and South East Asians, gulgula strikes memories. Served during various festivities; be it religious, cultural or personal, these morsels of sweetness are shared with friends and family to celebrate.

They are similar to basic fritters but have the Eastern flavor from the cardamom powder and fennel seeds.  Many variations are made with small alteration in recipes. Besides the plain version, gulgula are made with a sweet lentil stuffing. These stuffed gulgulas are usually made for fasting rituals in Hindu households.

In India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, gulgulas are made on happy occasions with the whole family gathered around and lending a hand. Weddings and religious holidays like Eid and Diwali don’t go without gulgula being served at least once.
