Maghe Sakranti: Fulaura (Spicy Black Lentil Doughnut) Recipe!!
With Kichadi (Recipe Here) and Chaku (Recipe Here), back home we used to make fulaura on Maghe Sankranti as well. I love how fulaura is so easy to prepare, fluffy, crispy, and most importantly yummy :) Maghe Sakranti is one of my favorite festivals as there are so many different kinds of foods that represent this day. I tried to recreate same vibe as I tried making most of the food we used to eat on Maghe Sakranti. I will post more recipes of other dishes during the weekend. First lets make fulaura :)
