Ingredients:  
2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract or mixed essence
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
handful raisins

oil for frying

Directions:
Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, peel and mash bananas until smooth.
Add sugar, spices, and vanilla extract, mix in well; set aside.
In a separate bowl, sift flour and baking powder together.
Stir flour into banana mixture, combine thoroughly. Fold in desired amount of raisins or chopped maraschino cherries. Let mixture rest for 20 minutes.
Heat a deep pot with enough oil to fry gulgula.
Use two small spoons to shape batter and drop into hot oil. Scoop up some batter with one spoon and use the other to sort of shape the batter before dropping it into the oil. Turn frequently to ensure even browning. Fry until dark brown.
Drain on paper towels.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Bananas must be very ripe to achieve the best flavor.
The amount of flour you'll need will vary based on how big or small the bananas are, start with 1/2 cup. Batter should be slightly thicker than cake batter and should be able to slightly hold its shape when dropped into the oil. If this does not happen, add more flour -a tbsp at a time until consistency is reached.
Do a taste test by frying one gulgula first before frying up the entire bowl of batter so you can check to see if there is enough sugar and spices to suit your palate.
