Sukhdi | Golpapdi

Sukhdi is popular Gujarati sweet made of wheat flour and clarified butter.In the cold days they would make few batches of sukhdi and consume it to stay warm and comforting.If you happen to visit a Gujarati family apart from the delicious savory treats you would always find sukhdi in their pantry.I learned the recipe from my Gujarati neighbor friend,infact she was standing beside me throughout the making of Sukhdis.She told me how different families have different way of making sukhdi.Some people add ghee with flour while others like to add the ghee later to make the procedure a little easy.

The recipe of Sukhdi is very easy but a little tricky.To get a nice texture and taste you will have to add the jaggery in the end right after turning off the heat.
I was so impatient after making the sukhdi that I did not waited for longer to let it set and cut the pieces.You might notice the presence of some moisture in them .
