Coz festivals and sweets go hand in hand!
When it comes to festivals, there is a loop of endless joy, happiness, and prayers. With prayers, comes peace and prosperity, and prosperity is celebrated by sharing sweetness. People distribute sweets and greet each other by first offering sweets and then everything else. While it is observed for different reasons in different parts of the world, every ritual followed has its origin and importance
One of the most common and easy recipes made at almost every Indian household is Golpapdi or gur papdi, made out of jaggery and whole wheat flour. It is not only healthy but super tasty and an immunity booster too!
What did I use?
- Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
- Jaggery or gur – 1 cup
- Clarified butter or ghee – 3/4 cup
How did I make it?
- Making gur papdi is very easy. My first step was to take a frying pan or non-stick pan and heat ghee.
- Once the ghee has melted, I added whole wheat flour and roasted it on a low flame till the mixture becomes a little darker than golden brown. My mixture is well-cooked once it starts leaving a pleasant smell and is cooked and mixed on a low flame till 10 minutes
- That’s it! Once cooked, I took the pan off the stove and added jaggery, and allowed it to cool. I did NOT mix jaggery, just added it on top and let it cool
- After about 4 to 5 minutes, I started mixing jaggery with roasted whole wheat. My golpapdi is now ready to be spread on a greased pan.
- Once evenly spread, I allowed it to cool and then cut it into pieces.
- Golpapdi or gur papdi is ready!
Being healthy and extremely tasty, I am enjoying golpapdi guilt-free and making the most of my Navratri!
