Christmas is exactly a week away and I have so many things to complete! While browsing through my list of Christmas recipes I realised that I hadn't posted the Gulio recipe yet. It is a quintessential Mangalorean Kuswar item although it is slowly losing out to other popular items on the goodie platter. To those new here, 'Kuswar' is a collective term for Christmas goodies prepared in Mangalorean Catholic households and includes sweets as well as savouries - mostly deep fried.
A few years ago I had prepared the gulio and photographed them too but when I sat down to write the recipe I realised that I had misplaced the piece of paper I had noted it on. Since that week I had prepared several Kuswar items I couldn't remember the proportions and decided to try them again before posting the recipe. Days passed by and I simply forgot about it. Today I realised that it was high time I prepared and posted this recipe and with this my Kuswar collection is almost complete.
