Gur papdi is a sweet dish prepared using wheat flour, jaggery and ghee with cardamom flavour. This sweet is usually made in winter.
I was not aware of this sweet until Ume Rubab Mirza, a reader friend from Karachi sent me this recipe. Thank you 🙏 I referred to Tarla dalal’s video though for measures as the recipe sent by the reader was in grams. I got help from my friend sangeeta for translating too. I knew it would be tasting great with wheat flour, jaggery and ghee. And it is true, it was really a great sweet, quick to make with more natural ingredients like wheat flour, ghee and jaggery (gur).
Nothing fancy but amazing sweet that can be prepared for a quick sweet craving or even for kids, this is really good. Nuts are added as garnish but it adds a nice crunch and balances the sweet. Make sure to not skip nuts. I have garnished with nuts, almond here, but you can mix it in the sweet too. I thought it may be difficult for cutting, so I garnished the nuts. I used multigrain atta and had no issues, so you can also try that. You can also try with any of the millet flour mixed along with atta. But the nuts, along with this sweet gur papdi is amazing. I would recommend almond as I have used here or even cashew nuts, as in the recipe.
