SUKHDI

IMG-20170806-WA0028_wm

Sukhdi / Gol Papdi/ Gur Papdi is an aunthantic sweet of Gujarat , which is made from Ghee (Clarified Butter) , Wheat Flour and Jaggery . Only 3 ingredients but very tasty and very flavourful. I have garnish this delicious sweet with grated dry coconut. .

It is one of my signature dishes . My family loves Sukhdi, made by me.  Sukhdi has very soft and crumbly texture. Simply melt in mouth. More Ghee more Softness πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

This sweet is very common in each Gujrati home. It is very easy and very quick to make. Sudden guests arrive, you are running  short for fancy ingredients TRY THIS SWEET. Wheat flour, Ghee and Jaggery is very common and easily available ingredients. This sweet can be ready in 10-15 mins total.

In old days (I am taking about time when no cell phones, flight and hotels were exists) when people go on tours for business, the female members of family pack this sweet in a large quantity. So if ever they dont find any food in journey they can have this as it has very long shelf life. And if you add little hot water on it and stir for sometime a delicious Wheat Porridge is ready. So stomuch get full with a healthy and tasty meal.

In Gujarat, there is a place called MAHUDI. There is Jain Temple there. People offer Sukhdi to God there. There you will get fresh and warm Sukhdi. The taste of that Sukhdi …none can beat that. Just awesome. The best Sukhdi . After offering to God, we have to finish that Sukhdi-prasad there it self within primises. Its been said, if you take that Prasad at home , bad luck will follow you. I really dont know how much truth is that, as I always finish my portion there it self.

Cut into desired shape. Just cut it when hot but dont try to take it out of Plate . Allow it to cool . If you try to take out when hot, it will fall apart.

Once cool completely, take out the cut pieces and store in a container.  At time of taking out pieces, if you feel its stuck as Ghee is settled, just place this plate on gas for 3-4 seconds and then try again. Easily one can take out the pieces.

Store in a container. Hope you all will enjoy this delicacy of Gujarat.

Happy Cooking πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  1. What a mouthwatering treat this is Ruchi! So special that your family likes your Sukhdi. But I am not surprised. You are an awesome cook!
    As for the temple prasad, I would have no problem finishing all my prasad in the temple premises either.

  2. Thanks for sharing the recipe, it is another favorite of mine, but I never made it in my kitchen. I have developed liking of Gujarati food since my stay for couple years in that state and often make savory dishes, Handwa being one of the regular dinner menu😊

      1. Oh yes Ruchi, I certainly have few favorites in this cuisine. Eah January the Undhiyu cooking is very much looked forward to in my house, even friends demand😊. It is a task for me to collect all the required vegs for making it, but I have always made it every year even after leaving the state.😊
