Gud Papadi
Wheat flour and jaggery based sweet especially made for nursing mom's and also a perfect winter snack

This wheat flour and jaggery based sweet is very easy to prepare. It is a very quick and authentic gujarati recipe which requires only 3 ingredients ghee, atta and gur. However I have also added 3 more ingredients like desiccated coconut, gaund and katlu powder. The later 3 ingredients are given especially to nursing mothers. For those who don't know what is katlu powder I am sharing an image below.

There are many brands of katlu powder available in market. But I prefer using Hathi Katlu Powder as it is the best.

Gur Papdi can stay for long enough so we can carry them while travelling also. In the below picture you can see how perfect and melt in mouth the gur papdi have come out. In my house my mom use to feed this sweet in winters.

Tips for making gud papadi
  1. When the wheat flour is roasted it changes it's color and also you get nice aroma
  2. I have added edible gum(gaund), desiccated coconut and katlu powder however it's optional you can omit it if you do not have these ingredients
  3. You can also add cardamom powder, however i do not like the taste so never add it to any sweets
  4. Always make sure you grate the jaggery which will prevent any lumps formation
  5. To make sure the gur papadi doesn't get chewy, always switch off the stove and then add jaggery
  6. Gur papadi always taste best when its warm. You can store this for 15-20 days easily at room temperature
  7. Before serving each time you can reheat it in microwave if you wish
