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 🙂 🙂
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.
Lets see the detailed recipe…
- Wheat flour 2 cup
- Ghee 2 cup
- Gaund ½ cup ( Partly Crushed)(optional)
- Jaggery 1.5 cup (Nicely chopped)
- 3 tsp Grated dry coconut For garnishing (optional)
Before starting making Sukhdi, keep everything ready. In a heavy bottom kadai take ghee. When it get real hot add flour and Gaund. Roast on slow flame till its golden brown. Keep stiring continuously .
Once its colour turn to golden brown , slow the gas and add Jaggery mix well . Immediately switch off the Gas . Mix nicely. There should not be any unmelted particle of Jaggery. Now take this Mixture in a greased thali. Make it level . Now Garnish with dry coconut .
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 🙂 🙂
