Gulgule گلگلے

Gulgule is a Punjabi Rain time sweet Snack. When there is a rainy day, especially Sawan Rain, peoples are cooking and enjoying Gulgule and sharing it with their neighbours.   Today there was a rainy day in Karachi, I was remembering my childhood days in Faisalabad Punjab, my native city. Cook and enjoy the old recipes of Gulgule .
