Maida Gujili sweet

Maida Gujili sweet prepared with maida flour and sugar syrup for sweetness. I tried this the first time and got crispy Gujili. It was very nice and awesome. Gujili means a bazaar or a market place. This sweet is often found in the gujili markets of Bangalore. It is one of the street foods available in the road side bazaars. But nowadays this dishes are getting vanished by the new ones.
