Gol gappe is one street-food that’s loved equally by everyone! You might think it’s a tedious task to make ‘em at home, but we beg to differ. To make crispy puris, you need to roll the dough as thinly as possible and cut them into tiny, uniform circles. Make sure that the oil is heated up enough, otherwise, the puris won’t puff and will become soggy. Check out the detailed recipe link below and begin prepping!
