GUR PAPDI/GOL PAPI/SUKHDI is a super easy 3-ingredient Indian fudge made with just whole wheat flour, jaggery (unrefined cane sugar) and ghee/clarified butter. Enjoy it as a healthy snack or dessert any time!
Step 1: INGREDIENTS NEEDED:
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup powdered/grated jaggery (unrefined cane sugar)
½ cup ghee/clarified butter
¼ teaspoon powdered green cardamoms/elaichi
2 tablespoons of white sesame seeds, llightly roasted
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
Step 2: INSTRUCTIONS:
Grease a tray with melted ghee/oil and keep aside.
In a large deep saucepan/kadai, heat ghee until just melted.
Stir in atta/whole wheat flour and cook/roast/fry on medium low heat, stirring continuously.
Keep mixing and stirring until the flour starts to turn slightly dark and you get a nice aroma.
Initially, when you add the flour and mix, the mixture will be like a thick liquid.
As you continue to fry it, you will notice that it starts to thicken
After it has roasted/fried well, it will loosen up again and become liquidy.
This is the stage to remove from heat. It took me about 14 minutes.
At this stage, remove from heat and keep on a trivet. Keep stirring the mixture as the pan is still hot and the flour may burn at the bottom.
Once the mixture is slightly cool, add the cardamom powder and roasted sesame seeds.
Stir in powdered/grated jaggery.
Mix well with a spatula/spoon to combine well.
As soon as you see the jaggery has completely melted and has combined, immediately pour the mixture into the greased pan.
Smoothen the top with a flat silicone spatula, greased metal spatula/ flat-bottomed bowl.
Immediately, sprinkle more sesame seeds and slivered almonds and press gently to embed them into the soft burfi.
While the burfi is still warm, make cuts into desired shapes. Let cool completely.
Serve fudgy, healthy and super delicious Gur Papdi/Gol Papdi/Sukhdi to you family and friends! I have been munching on them whenever I get a sweet snack attack; they are so delicious!
Enjoy and Happy Cooking!
Step 11: NOTES:
Addition of cardamom powder and sesame seeds is optional.
Instead of almonds, you can use any other nut that you prefer.
Try not to burn the flour while roasting.
Cut into desired shapes while still warm as it may be difficult once they set.
