  • Large bowl for making batter
  • Iron Kadai or heavy bottomed utensil for frying


  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp fennel seeds (saunf)
  • 1-1.5 cup milk can adjust
  • 2 cup refined oil for frying can use any other oil


  • Gather all the ingredients. Make sure milk is warm and not hot. The room temperature is also fine. It's just that you have to mix it really well. I prefer to use a large bowl rather than a blender. Since we add sugar, the mixture is sticky and I avoid wasting it in blender.
    Take a large bowl, add wheat flour preferably after sieving. Add sugar and saunf. Gradually add milk and keep mixing.
  • Initially, it would look like bread crumbs. Keep adding milk and keep mixing so that no lumps are formed. It takes about 5 minutes of mixing. Not very runny rather little thick batter is preferred.
    Take an Iron Kadai and heat oil while you mix the batter. Take half-full spatula and carefully put it in Kadai for frying. Make sure the oil is hot and flame is low. Keep adding till the Kadai is almost full.
  • If everything is right, you will find tough to flip the gulgule for frying from the other side. Nothing to worry as its normal. I use a dry knife to flip them and hold with spatula.
  • Once they are fried from both sides, make the flame high just before you take them out. They would become dark brown from outside.
    Keep them on a clean newspaper. They might stick to tissue so avoid it.
    Make another batch.
  • The soft Gulgule are ready! Enjoy!
