In my Gujarati thali post, you would have seen this sweet recipe showcased in the middle of the plate. It is nothing but Sukhdi/Gur papdi. Gur/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, you can include this easy sweet in your 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 !

This recipe has been featured on Twinkl, as part of their Easy Diwali Sweets recipe blog. Thank you Twinkl !

Sukhdi/Gur Papdi Recipe

Sukhdi/Gud Papdi Recipe Sukhdi/Gur papdi -Traditional, easiest Gujarati sweet recipe.
Cuisine: Indian
Category: Dessert
Serves: 7
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 10 Minutes
Total time: 15 Minutes

1 cup - 200ml or 250ml
  • Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
  • Melted ghee - 1/4 cup
  • Grated jaggery - 1/2 cup

  • 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 you 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 you can’t level it.
  • After 2-3 minutes, mark the shapes using a knife. Leave it aside for 10 minutes.
    Now you can easily remove the sweet from the plate. It tastes good after it is cooled down completely.
U can sprinkle some poppy seeds for 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 you roast the wheat flour till you 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.
Melts in mouth. U can’t stop with one !
