Sukhadi / Wheat Flour Burfi / Golpapdi & awards....

                                                                             
Sukhadi is a traditional Gujarati sweet which I learnt from my friend Himadri. Wheat flour is fried in ghee till light brown and then grated jaggery is added to it. Once done this mixture can be molded into the desired shape (square or diamond). 


Yields: 1 plate, Cooking time: 10-15 minutes


Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup Wheat flour
1 cup Jaggery (I've used dark colored jaggery here)
1 cup Ghee / clarified butter
1 tsp Poppy seeds
1 tsp Cardamom powder
Cashews for decoration


Method:
Grease a plate with ghee and keep aside. Heat ghee in a heavy pan.
                                                  


 Add wheat flour and stir continuously on medium flame so that it doesn't burn. Mix well till you get a beautiful aroma of cooked flour or the mixture turns light brown in color. 
                                                                   


Stir continuously and add jaggery to it. Mix well till jaggery melts and ghee leaves from the side of the pan. Turn off the flame and add cardamom powder. Mix well thoroughly and pour the mixture evenly in that greased plate. With the help of flat spatula press it hard and even the upper surface. 
                                                                              


Sprinkle poppy seeds and cut it diagonally or any other desired shapes.
                                                                               


 Decorate with cashews and later when it is cool down, can be stored in an air tight container.


                                                              


This recipe and home remedy for cough (below) goes to Neha's Kid's Menu Event
Also I would like to share a very effective home remedy.This is the best homemade honey cough syrup that I often give to my son when he has cough and the best part is that it does not have any side effect on my 3 year old son. Mix one tsp of honey, pinch of black pepper powder and 1/2 tsp ginger juice (you can also add 1/2 tsp warm water to it). Have this 2-3 times a day for about 4-5 days. This is a good natural remedy for cough.
                                                                  


This recipe also goes to my dear friend Nayna's Flavour's of Gujarat event.
                                                                            


And now few awards from my dear Gouridi of Didibhai's Kitchen. She has bestowed not one but 5 wonderful awards. I would like to thank her from the bottom of my heart.
