Gur Papdi | Gol Papdi | Sukhdi

Starting week 2 of our month long’Journey Through The Flavors’, I am starting with alphabet G. I have a very traditional Winter sweet that is popular in many states by different names. The Gur Papdi | Gol Papdi | Sukhdi, can essentially be labeled under 3 ingredient recipe. All it needs is Ghee, wheat flour and jaggery. The other flavorings and toppings are used based on preferences and can be used as needed.

Gur Papdi as it called in Gujarat is also known as Sukhdi in the Sindhi cuisine. It is prepared mainly during the winter months to keep the body warm. It is so simple to make and takes only 15 minutes from start to finish. I am a big fan of burfis and this has a very addictive flavor and beautiful crumble in the mouth texture.

The boys are still home and it was a perfect time to make a small batch of the Gur Papdi | Gol Papdi | Sukhdi. My older one ate a piece and said that it was interesting. But, my little one though, liked it a lot and I saw him come back for one more piece. My husband also loved it and the 9 pieces that I made disappeared by night.

  1. Omg such a fantastic gol papdi sandhya !! Looks fabulous, so perfectly cut slices !! This looks super addictive for sure..you are a perfectionist, I love how you explain every little detail. This is killing me !! Wish was your neighbor..Its Midnight here am craving for some Gol papdi 😀 you seriously nailed this sweet !!

  2. That sounds very authentic Sandhya. I tasted this at our local temple during a festival when a Gujarati meal was served. Loved it and asked the Gujarati lady who made it for the temple. She gave me the same recipe as above without the almond garnish. Superb!

  3. You nailed it prefectly Sandhya, am yet to prepare this alluring gur papdi, hope i can prepare blindly after seeing your prefect squares. Too tempting they are. My mouth is just watering here.

  4. Perfectly made God Papdi. The trick to this sweet is to switch off the flame before adding jaggery, else the papdi gets hard. Seriously I feel like picking a piece to enjoy this such a well made sweet from my very own state Gujrat.

  5. oh ! u r choosing the classic sweets and making it so well. I have wonderfully failed at making this 3 times over, and must muster courage to try your recipe and method. Perhaps sweets elude me 🙂 instead i shall pop over to ur place and nibble on this.. I have seen another version with khus khus (poppy seeds) sprinkled on the greased pan before pouring the cooked jaggery – ghee – flour mixture

  6. One of my favorite… sukhdi as we know it as. Its been ages since I’ve made it at home. I also add some powdered almonds along with the flour and sprinkle poppy seeds on it.

  7. These sound so intriguing! I have everything I need to make these, so I’m definitely giving them a try. I need to go check out your other alphabet posts! What an interesting challenge!

  8. Oh my, I’d love to try this treat. I’m so curious about ethnic foods and I have definitely led a sheltered life when it comes to trying different cuisines. I love your alphabet challenge. This makes sure you have interesting recipes to share.

  9. Your papdi gol looks amazing, I haven’t had it in years and I didn’t even think I could make my very own. Thank you for the recipe.

  10. I absolutely love how easy this is to make. Perfect treat when sugar craving hits, right? Love the addition of cardamom and the ghee. I bet this taste just amazing with almonds on top.

  11. These look so delicious!
    I will definitely be giving them a go as my kids love a sweet treat every now and then.
    I will look out for Jaggery 😀

  12. This looks delicious! I love that it is so simple to make! The flavor combo looks like this would be a great treat that doesn’t overpower you with to much sweetness – perfect!
