Today is my younger son Harsha's Birthday so making this sweet. Both my son's love this dish as well as hubby. Whenever I make these, he is the one who helps me a lot in rolling the gul gul.
To prepare this simple sweet we need
All purpose flour/Maida - 2 cups
Semolina/sooji fine - 4 tbsp
Sugar(granulated or powdered) - 1/4 cup( can add more if needed to make it more sweeter)
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Melted butter - 2 tbsp
Coconut cream(thick coconut milk) - enough to mix in ( around 3/4 to 1 cup)
Egg white - optional ( I sometime don't use them)
Salt - a pinch
Oil for deep frying
In a mixing bowl... mix in butter and baking powder... to it add all purpose flour/maida nd sooji fine... mix well with hands and also add in sugar and a pinch of salt... Add coconut milk little by little and mix everything to a dough consistency( not very hard and not very soft too). Cover with a wet cloth and set aside for 5 - 10 mts. Then take a small marble size of dough and a fork. Press the dough at the back of the fork(also to flatten them).. press with fingers lightly. Then from one end roll the dough just like rolling a mat... Now you can see a nice ridged curl at the back( where the dough had been pressed). Repeat this step to all. Heat oil in a frying pan and drop the shaped curl dough into the oil and deep fry till crisp and light brown. You can store them in a air tight container at least for few weeks.
