ABOUT Gulgula Pua/Meethi Pakodi RECIPE

In North India,when the bride enters her husband’s home after marriage,it is a big occasion with multiple family members,friends and neighbours coming to see the bride and asking her multiple questions about herself,her family and her likes and dislikes.One very crucial question which concerns the elder women population among family,friends and neighbours is whether the bride could cook and if yes then how well!Here is where she is initiated into the family kitchen to show off her prowess! This ritual has been shown in numerous Hindi movies (Humraaz -2003 for instance) where the bride makes something for the family.Indians prefer something sweet for a start and so the preference is a dessert of her choice.However this recipe is preferred mainly because its easy to make,delicious to eat without messy hands,is a traditional recipe of the North Indian region and is loved by everyone with some lovely homemade pickle.The assortment of pickles for this delicious snack very from Mango,Lemon and Red Chili including pickles made from traditional fruits and produce like Glutinous Fruit(Bora),Keronda(Biological name – Carissa Carandas) and plain green chilli pickles. Personally I love Gulgula Pua with homemade Lemon Pickle.
