Golpapdi- A traditional dessert made with wheat flour,ghee and Jaggary
Golpapdi or Gur papdi is a popular and traditional dessert or sweet from Gujarat which is specially made during winter. Golpapdi / kansaar is also popular in Sindhi community as sukhdi and in my home town Mathura we call this –kasaar. It is quite an easy recipe which is great as a dessert, a healthy recipe for kids lunchbox and good as a travel food and have a long shelf life .
A good amount of ghee, jaggary, dry fruits and sesame seeds goes into it which gives warmth and energy to our body,sesame seeds and nuts are very good for health as they are rich in calcium ,fat and minerals.
As A Post Natal Food-
You can also add warm spices and herbs into it like nutmeg powder,dry ginger powder,clove powder, fried and crushed edible gum/ gond, dry grated coconut etc according to your choice if making for new mothers or lactating mothers.
I have made the simple basic version but you can adjust it as per your choice. The amount of jaggary can also be slightly adjusted according to your taste preference.
