This time Veg Bhookkad is here with a popular Gujarati Sweet Dish #God Papdi which is also known as #Sukhdi. God means Jaggery; hence, it is made using Jaggery. People prefer to eat it in Winters because Jaggery is very beneficial in winters. Besides addition of dry fruits turns it warmer for our stomach.
I remember the first time when I ate this Dish. We were on our journey to Somnath Mahadev Mandir. It is believed that the Visit to Somnath is incomplete without the visit to Maal Bappa Mandir that comes on the way to Somnath. At Maal Bappa’s Temple, they cook Sizzling and Fresh #Sukhdi for the devotees who want offer Prasad to God. That Sukhdi is the best Sukhdi on this earth. It is so tasty that you cannot resist from eating even while its too hot to hold.
Since then, we started making #Sukhdi at home in our style. Let's check the Recipe.
1 cup Ghee
1 Cup Wheat Flour/Gehu Atta
2 Teaspoon Jaggery/Gud
1 Tablespoon Ginger Powder/Saunth
1 Tablespoon Dried Crushed Coconut/ Sukha Pisaa Nariyal
10 Green Cardamom/Hari Elaichi
1 Teaspoon Natural (Edible) Gum/Gond
First step is to heat the Ghee in a pan.
Once the Ghee is hot enough, take the Gond and roast in it. You will see a change in colour and size of the Gond since they are roasted.
Take this Roasted Gond out of the pan and turn the flame to low. Now add the Wheat Flour and roast it too in the same Ghee for about 15-20 minutes at low flame.
You have to roast this till the colour of the flour changes to light brown.
Now take the pan off the gas and keep it aside for 5-7 minutes for it to cool. Don't forget to keep stirring it in between.
Meanwhile prepare the Dry Fruits. Finely Chop the Pistachio and Almonds and create the powder of the Cardamom using Mortar and Pestle.
When the Flour is a little warm, add the Dry Fruits, Crushed Coconut and the Edible Gum (Gond) and mix it.
Then add the grated Jaggery (or Jaggery into small pieces) and mix it very nicely.
The God Papdi/Sukhdi is ready. It's time to give shape to it. To give a nice shape to our sweet dish, we will take a dish, apply some Ghee on it using a brush, put our God Papdi/Sukhdi and flatten it evenly in the dish.
Then using a knife or a spoon, cut it into your desired shape while it is still warm.
It will cool down in about 30 minutes and will be ready to serve.
Make sure, we give shapes while it is warm or else it will become hard to cut.
Gond is a very important ingredient. If roasted very nicely, only then it will create wonders. If not roasted well, all your effort will go in vain because as the name says it is edible gum, it will stick in your mouth if it is not roasted properly and your dish will turn into a hazard.
You have to be a little quick while preparing this dish because if the flour cools down, you will lose the dish completely.
