Namkeen Gulgule (नमकीन गुलगुले) - My baby is 5 months old today !!!

Wow, a real big milestone, completed 5 months of his earthling life :) He is a smart baby now enjoying his new gift "Exersaucer" from mommy and daddy. 

Wow, it has been a week since I posted, got little too busy at home and office front.

Today, I am going to post a very easy appetizer which can be prepared in about 15 min. time and is loved by all - kids and adults the same. I learnt this from my mom and now everyone I know loves this :)

Namkeen Gulgule (नमकीन गुलगुले)

Aata (Wheat Flour) - 1 cup
Hing (asafoetida) - 1/4 tsp
Dry Red Chili Powder - 1 - 1.5 tsp (increase the quantity based on how much hot you would like it to be)
Cumin Seeds - 1 tbsp
Dahi (Yogurt) - 2 cups (the sour curd makes them even tastier)
Oil - to deep fry

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (except oil). It should be of such a consistency that you can use a spoon (or your hand) and pour spoonfuls in the hot oil (so, not too runny and not too thick). Now, heat the oil in a deep frying pan or kadahi and fry the gulgules till they are light brown.

Take them out in a bowl/plate and serve with your favorite condiment - ketchup or some yummy coriander/tomato chutney. Enjoy and post your comments !!!

Now, in my next few posts, I will give some of mine and my family's Holi (होली) Favorites.

Ruplai, I posted the pic and also made a small correction, it actually needs 2 cups of dahi and I mistaken had written just one. I apologize for that.
