I heard that Gulgulas is also a classic treat in Fiji. Indians would often share Ggulgula with their friends mainly during Hindu festivals such as Diwali (Festival of Lights) and Holi (Festival of Spring). Now you can also make and enjoy them at home as they are so easy to make (and without yeast) and taste very similar and you may think of them as mini doughnuts.
