Gulgula , or sweet banana dumplings are made for Holi at home , it's a ritual. This isn't a traditional recipe - it's tweaked along the years and we now have the ultimate delightful flavored gulgula to fast upon . Make sure you use over ripe bananas to get the best flavors into these dumplings.
2 Cups Rice Flour.
1/4 Cup Suji .
1/4 Cup Flour/Maida.
1/2 Cup Sugar.
1/2 Cup Gur/Jaggery.
250 Grams Over Ripe Bananas.
1/2 Teaspoon Fennel Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Green Cardamom Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Cooking Soda.
Milk or Curd - As needed to make a thick dropping consistency batter.
Mash bananas , add sugar and gur , whip it up , then add in the spice , mix well and blend in all the flours etc , adding milk / curd to get the consistency you are looking for - a thick dropping batter.
Heat oil /ghee gently drop in the batter with your fingers , allowing the dumplings to rise to the surface on their own. When you get a nice golden color take them out .. sprinkle with castor sugar if you like . Happy Holi !
