The chef’s golgappa-making adventure begins with suji, which he pours hot oil over. He stirs it diligently with a spoon until it warms up. Gradually adding water, he crafts a soft dough. With the dough in hand, he makes small balls and expertly flattens them into an oval shape using a rolling pin. These flattened creations take a dip in medium-hot oil until they turn golden on one side and light golden on the other. With the golgappas now perfectly fried, the chef carves a small opening in each puri, stuffs them with aloo masala, and positions them atop shot glasses filled with pani. And there you have it – a plate of delectable homemade golgappas ready to be savoured and enjoyed. Take a look at the video:
In just two days, the video has skyrocketed to 21.9 million views, capturing the attention of viewers far and wide. The comment section was brimming with love and appreciation for the golgappa recipe.
