One of my family favourites, this is a traditional gujarati sweet dish which has been a hit with babies not only while they were teething but even in later years. Every winter, i still make and store a large batch of golpapdi and usually everyone has one piece in the morning with their breakfast. It is full of energy, carbohydrates, calcium and iron. The ghee provides large amounts of vitamin a.
