Here's wishing you and your families a Healthy, Safe, and Happy New Year. We know how things have been for the last two years ever since the Covid 19 pandemic struck the world. 

It is important that we stay safe. I would urge you to wear a mask, and be responsible in following  prescribed behavior during this medical crisis which seems to go on and on.

Even in difficult times, we have shown great spirit in cooking th best food for our families. In my blog, I share with you dishes that I have made myself which are healthy and tasty.

We start the New Year with a sweet. Here's an easy recipe for a sweet from Gujarat called Gur Papdi or Sukhdi. This is made with Gur (Jaggery), Atta and Ghee. 

Give it try and let me know how you liked it! 

May the New Year bring in better times for us. Once again, I wish you a Very Happy New Year. 


  • Gur (Jaggery), 3/4 cup
  • Atta, (Wheat Flour), 1 cup
  • Ghee, (Clarified Butter),  1/2 cup
  • Almonds, 8-10 
  • Pistachios, 8-10
  • Cardamom, 7-8

Grate the jaggery 
Make slivers of the almonds and chop the pistachios
Crush the cardamom to a powder 
Grease a plate with ghee to spread the Gur Papdi and cut into desired shapes when it is ready 

In a thick-bottomed kadhai, heat the ghee and when it fully melts add the atta
Stir continuously on medium/low flame for about 7-8 minutes or till the atta gets well roasted, turns slightly golden in colour and gives off a good aroma
(Take care that you stir continuously on low flame otherwise the atta will get over roasted which will affect the taste of the Gur Papdi) 
Add the cardamom powder and mix well

Switch off the gas and continue to stir the mixture for a few minutes
Remove the kadhai and let the roasted atta cool a little
It should not cool too much
To this add the grated jaggery and mix thoroughly so that it gets well- blended with the atta and melts due to the heat retained

Spread the Gur Papdi evenly in the greased plate and garnish with almonds and pistachio
For better affect press the almonds and pistachios gently with the back of a spoon into the Gur Papdi
Make cuts of the desired shape in the Gur Papdi while it is still slightly warm
(It becomes difficult to cut once it cools too much) 
Wait for 15-20 minutes, then gently remove the Gur Papdi pieces from the greased plate 
Store the Gur Papdi in air tight glass containers
