Once it has dissolve completely, strain the jaggery water.
Add all the other ingredients and combine well.
Batter should be thick but  to a dropping constancy and leave it aside for 15-20 minutes.
If you are deep frying the Gulgule ,beat the batter about 5-7 minutes, this process will make gulgule  soft and fluffy without using baking powder.
For deep frying heat oil in a karahi on a medium heat.
