Sukhdi, Gor Papdi or Gur Papdi whatever you may call it, this simply delicious and divine sweet is sure to make an impressive addition to the repertoire of your authentic recipes!  

This traditional and authentic delicacy from Gujarat is one of the common and frequently made sweet dishes which is made of staple ingredients such as whole wheat flour, homemade desi ghee and jaggery. It is rich, filling and surely provides a lot of energy.

Sukhdi is one of those sweets that you just crave for it,  we never planned in advance to prepare Sukhdi it's always been on instant demand of family members. 

A traditional Gujarati recipe that tastes delicious and divine, prepared with staple ingredients such as wheat flour, ghee and jaggery.


In Gujarati, SUKH means happiness and generally, sweets are prepared on happy occasions :) In the word GOR PAPDI, Gor translates Jaggery and Papdi means Thins, as the main ingredient in this dish is Jaggery.

Sukhdi is a jaggery bar or fudge, and one of those dishes which can be made in a jiffy, fuss-free recipe and can be done with those basic ingredients which are easily available in Indian kitchens.

Sukhdi is also one of those sweets that can stay fresh for a longer period thus it is known as a picnic, travelling or lunch box item. According to many Indian health experts, Sukhdi is considered as healthy sweet or snacks for growing up children as these bars or fudge prepared with wholesome ingredients such as wheat flour, ghee and jaggery, as compared with plain flour biscuits or chocolates.


In Gujarat, a place called ' MAHUDI', Mahudi Derasar ( Jain Temple) is considered to be one of the most sacred Jain pilgrims, however, anyone can pay a visit to this temple anytime.

At this temple, this strict tradition has to follow that ONLY sukhdi can be offered as prasad ( offering to God ) and that too, made at the temple premises and the same Prasad is to be consumed and shared within the temple premises with other devotees, also strictly forbidden to take Prasad out of the premises.


A basic and traditional recipe prepared with whole wheat flour, ghee and jaggery, so simple. Keep these three ingredients as a base and you can add and swap the mix-ins according to your preferences and that will yield different types and flavours of Sukhdi.

For a sweet and aromatic flavoured Sukhdi add cardamom or nutmeg powder. Add nuts powder such as coconut, cashew or almond, see our almond sukhdi.

For a fruity twist add dried dates, figs or raisins or for a strong and robust taste add Goond (edible gum), dried ginger powder.

Usually, Sukhdi is set in a tray, then cut into square or diamond shape or can be served warm in a bowl too, which can be scooped.

For a basic Suskhdi recipe you will need three basic ingredients and all of them are necessary.

Flour - You'll need whole wheat flour also known as Roti Ka Aata or Chapatti Aata. Usually, fine roti flour is used in this recipe, but I have seen many uses coarse whole wheat flour too. I always use wholemeal roti aata which is packed with wheat bran thus my Sukhdi appear darker brown.

Ghee - For an authentic taste, dairy ghee is vital but again I have seen people using vegetable ghee ( Dalda) as in India pure dairy ghee is expensive, however for vegan recipe vegetable ghee works fine here.

Jaggery - Jaggery 'Gor' in Gujarati and 'Gud' in Hindi, available easily in any Asian food shops. Health experts giving us countless benefits of jaggery, when used in moderation.

In the market various types of Jaggery is available. Organic and Desi jaggery are in darker colour, also very pale yellow colour jaggery available too, according to health experts this pale yellow jaggery is adulterated, however, any type of Jaggery can be used for making Sukhdi.


1. Grease a tray or baking pan with ghee or unflavoured cooking oil or spray.
2. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom kadai and add flour.
3. On a very low heat fry the flour, keep stirring until nicely roasted brown but not burnt and it releases its aroma.

4. Add grated jaggery and quickly mix everything.
5. Pour the mixture into a greased thali and pressed evenly.
6. Let it cool for five minutes then cut into the desired shape.
7. Store in an airtight container.
