golpapdi recipe is a traditional Gujarati sweet dish prepared with whole-wheat flour and jaggery. Gujarati gol papdi is one of the quickest sweet to prepare and also this wheat flour based sweet is easier to prepare than any of the other traditional Gujarati sweets.

The texture of golpapdi is not like kaju katli or a barfi, it is quite crumbly yet melt in your mouth texture. The texture is derived by addition of ghee. Gujarati gol papdi is made with the most basic Indian sweet ingredients and I am also sure that each ingredient used in the recipe is definitely available in every Indian household pantry.

The recipe is hassel-free and quite easy to prepare yet you need to be a little patient while preparing gol papdi. Also, before adding the jaggery to the golpapdi make sure to turn the flame off as you do not want to boil the jaggery and reach one string consistency. That will make the sukhdi hard and chewy. Add more or less jaggery as per your taste. Make sure to chop the jaggery or grate it as it will melt faster.

Store sukhdi in an air-tight container. Traditionally sukhdi is eaten during the winters as it provides your body with warmth. I usually have gol papdi made and stored which helps kill the craving of sweets.

Since golpapdi does not have too much ghee and is trouble-free to prepare, you can even make it often as an evening snack. In the winters, you can also add edible gum (gaund) to this golpapdi recipe as done in many states of Gujarat.

I tried this recipe but I did not get pieces. Is it because of dry jaggery or not enough ghee? Please advise. The taste was good.
