Almond Sukhdi is a delicious take on the original Gujarati Sukhdi or Gor Papdi. Basic Sukhdi uses only 3 ingredients - atta, jaggery and ghee but this sukhdi has the addition of almond flour which provides a wonderful nutty flavour.

Ingredients for Sukhdi with Almond Flour

1. Whole wheat flour or chapati flour (if you can find coarse wheat flour known as Ghau No Jado Lot or Bhakhri No Lot is the best)

2. Ghee is the backbone of this recipe, a good quality fresh ghee makes all the noticeable difference. We have used homemade desi ghee

3. Jaggery, known as Gor or Gud. We have used dark desi jaggery known as desi gur.

4. Almond flour. we have ready-made ground almonds. To make at home simply grind the whole almonds in the grinder.

5. Cardamom powder - brings delicious flavours and aid indigestion.


These delicious Gor Papdis are made without any water, thus they store well for a longer period or at least 2-3 weeks. Once totally cooled, store in an airtight container and leave it on a kitchen worktop. In cooler weather ghee makes them a little harder, so simply warm up in the microwave for a couple of seconds. 


This recipe needs little time and patience but still, it can be made in less than 30 minutes so it is a quick dessert for when cravings hit.
1. Take a clean heavy-based wide mouth pan, kadai or frying pan, and heat ghee.
2. Add flour
3. Fry the flour on low heat until darker in colour but not burnt and aromatic. It will take about 18-20 minutes (pic 3-4)

Prep time: 5 MCook time: 25 MTotal time: 30 M


  • 1 cup wholewheat flour
  • 3/4 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup jaggery finely chopped 
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • Pinch of cardamom powder
  • 1 tbsp. Slivered almonds 
  • Heavy based pan, kadai or frying pan
  • Spatula 
  • Plate or tray


  1. Heat ghee in a pan.
  2. Add flour and fry it on low heat, keep stirring continuously. 
  3. Once the flour starts roasting properly, you'll see mixture getting loose.
  4. Also, the flour will go darker in colour but not burnt and aromatic. 
  5. Add almond flour and mix, roast for another minute or so.
  6. Then add cardamom powder and jaggery and quickly combine everything.
  7. Once the jaggery completely mixes with the flour, turn off the heat.
  8. Pour the mixture into a greased thali or tray, and press it evenly with the help of the back of the spoon.
  9. Sprinkle slivered almonds if using.
  10. Let it cool for 5 minutes then cut into the desired shape using a sharp knife.
  11. Let it cool completely, then store in an airtight container.


You may use jaggery powder too.
If you prefer sweeter sukhdi, go up to 3/4 cup of jaggery.
You may just add chopped almonds too.
Do not roast for too long, it may taste bitter.
Once the jaggery melts, turn off the heat and set the mixture.
If the mixture looks hard, add a couple of tablespoons of milk, this may reduce the shelf life though.
