Gol Gappa / ಗೋಲ್ ಗಪ್ಪಾ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Gol gappa is a kind of small poori which is the main ingredient in chat items. If you have gol gappa at home, you can prepare the delicious chat food at any time. Of course, you can buy it from the shops also. I always prefer preparing these gol gappa at home. Here is an easy recipe for preparing gol gappa:


Ingredients:
Sooji rava / samilina - 1 1/2 cup
All purp flour / maida - 3 to 4 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Cooking soda - 1/4 spoon
Little water
Oil for deep frying

Method:
Mix the all purp flour, rava and salt in a vessel. 
Add water little by little and prepare the dough. Better if it is harder than chapathi dough.
Cover this dough with a wet cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Prepare lemon size balls from the dough and roll them like chapathi. You can use some dry flour if required.
 

Take a small round shape cutter (I used the cap of milk can here) and cut the chapathi into small round pooris.
Repeat this step until all the dough is finished. 
 

Cover these pooris with a plate so that they will not get dried out.
Deep fry these pooris in medium flame till they they are slightly golden brown in color.
Leave the deep fried pooris on a tissue paper for sometime. Transfer them to an air tight container once they are cool.

Note: While deep frying, some pooris will puff up and some of them will become flat. You can use these flat pooris for preparing Tikki poori, Bhel puri, etc. Puffed pooris will be useful for preparing Pani poori, Dahi poori, etc.
