I am so happy that I am able to make Kuswar for the first time all by myself. I am already one with making 5 items & I have another 3 more to go. Like I mentioned before, all the Kuswar recipes are my Mother's recipe. My Mom makes the best Kuswar & I am glad that I am able to share here yummy recipes to my followers. Today I am sharing Gulio recipe, Gulio in Konkani means round. since this snack is round in shape  its called as Gulio. This snack is sweet & you can alter the sweetness of this snack by adding more or less Jaggery. This is how it is made

Makes: 6 cups of Gulio
Making time: 1 - 2 hours
Total time: 15 hours

  • 2 cups boiled rice (brown or white any variety is fine but I used brown)
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 1 cup white Jaggery
  • 1/2 tspn Cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • Oil for deep frying
  1. Soak the rice in water for at least 6 to 8 hours. Overnight is better.
  2. Now grind the rice along with coconut, salt & cardamom powder to a smooth paste
  3. Now in an nonstick Pan or any other big pan, add the rice paste & keep stirring to form a stiff dough. Once the dough is formed, turn off the heat & set aside to cool down a little.
  4. Now start making small balls with this dough & place them in a greased plate.
  5. Heat the oil & fry these gulios on medium heat until they are dark brown.
  6. Once they are fried store them in an airtight container.
Here is the step by step process to show how to make the Gulio dough,


  1. never heard of them but they do look crispy and yummy

  2. Hi Sheela, these look yumm... cant wait to try them! :). Just one query - can we use regular brown rice, instead of boiled rice?

    1. Actually NO. This is a traditional recipe so altering it with ingredients will completely change the taste & texture.

  3. Looks amazing!!....we have a dish on the similar lines in andhra too!! will try this for sure....following you. I will be happy if you follow me back!!
