Sukhdi Recipe is also referred as Gud Papdi Recipe in India. It is very quick, authentic Gujarati sweet made with just 3 ingredients: Ghree, Wheat Flour and Jaggery(Gud). Sukhadi is very soft, melt in mouth texture.
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup jaggery
  • ⅔ cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 tbsp dried ginger powder (optional)
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut (optional)
  1. First prepare the plate to set the sukhdi. You need to grease the bottom of plate by ghee.
  2. Put ghee into large non-stick pan. And melt it on slow flame. When ghee is slightly hot (bubbles are started to form), add flour wheat flour.
  3. Stir with spatula, the mixture looks like thick paste and feels heavy while you are stirring it.
  4. Now roast the flour into ghee, if ghee is not enough to roast the flour, you can add more. First add 1 tbsp, then if you still required then add one tbsp one by one.
  5. Stir it continually on medium heat for 4-5 minutes, then slow the flame and keep starring.
  6. Now its tricky part. How you would know the flour is perfectly roasted? If The flour’s color gets darker, It gets very nice aroma and Its become lighter than before.
  7. Now turn off the gas. Let it be cool for just 1-2 minutes, not more than that. After this add jaggery, quickly mix it with flour. Add dried ginger powder, desiccated coconut if you like. They are totally optional. Now quickly set the mixture into greased plate. And flatten the surface well.
  8. Now using knife slice it into desired shape (square or diamond). Now let it be cool completely.
  9. After it cools down completely, remove the pieces gently and serve.
1) Sukhdi tastes best when you served it hot.

2) I have used organic jaggery; it always comes in a lumpy form. But of you have block of jaggery, then first grate it or make it like powdered form and take measurement accordingly. So there no chunks are there in final sukhdi pieces.
