Gulha are small ball-shaped dumplings that are stuffed with a mixture of tuna, finely chopped onion, grated coconut, and chili. Depending on the cook, turmeric, lime juice and chopped curry leaves are added to the mixture. Once ready the gulha are deep fried.
Gulha can be made with wheat flour or rice flour dough. The rice-flour gulha are usually smaller, harder and more crunchy. The size of gulha may vary from the large ones that are slightly larger than the size of a ping pong ball to the smallest which are about size of marbles. This snack was traditionally eaten with sweetened hot tea and sometimes also together with other short eats.
