In my Gujarati thali post, u would have seen this sweet recipe showcased in the middle of the plate.It is nothing but Sukhdi/Gud papdi.Gud means jaggery.It is one of the traditional Gujarati sweets recipes.This is the easiest sweet i have ever tried so far.U can try this in microwave too.As holi is nearing,u can include this easy sweet in ur holi recipes menu.With just 3 ingredients,it tastes awesome! It can be done under 15 minutes.U can try this for your surprise guests too.They will be amazed by its taste.I followed Ezcookbook Ishita’s recipe.I was totally satisfied with the outcome.I got it perfect in my first attempt.The ratio of wheat flour & ghee is 2:1, which is very important for this sweet.So do not reduce its quantity.How come a sweet with so much of ghee go wrong?.So Anyone can make this sweet easily. Do try this for your family,they will love it for sure !
Grate jaggery or powder it very finely.*There should not be any single pieces in it.*It is the most important point here.Grease a plate with ghee and set aside.
In a kadai,heat ghee and roast the wheat flour in medium flame till u get nice aroma.The color of wheat flour will be changed to golden brown.Keep stirring to avoid getting burnt.
Keep the flame low and add grated jaggery to this and mix well.After all the jaggery is combined well with the flour,switch off the flame immediately.It takes a minute only.(Please be careful on keeping the heat in entire process else jaggery will get cooked more and Sukhdi will become chewy & hard.)
After u switch off the flame,stir the mixture for a second till jaggery is melted completely.Put this mixture into the ghee greased plate and level it with the back of spatula or use a polythene sheet.Do it quickly.Else u can’t level it.
After 2-3 minutes,mark the shapes using a knife.Leave it aside for 10 minutes. Now u can easily remove the sweet from the plate.It tastes good after it is cooled down completely.
U can sprinkle some poppy seeds f0r decoration !
Store in a box and enjoy.U can keep it for a week.
The color of papdi depends on the color of jaggery.Mine came out light yellow in color.
Make sure u roast the wheat flour till u get a nice aroma.
Jaggery should be fine without lumps or pieces.It should be melted in the heat of wheat flour.
No need to use cardamom.U can use cashew nuts pieces at the end before spreading in the plate to get a crunchy taste while eating.
