How to make Gol Papdi

  • Melt ghee in the pan, add wheat flour, and saute on low flame. Continue till it turns golden brown in color. Stir continuously.
  • Remove the flour from the flame and add cardamom powder, coconut, and jaggery. Take a greased thali of diameter 6 inches and sprinkle poppy seeds on it. When the jaggery melts and the mixture is a bit warm, pour on the greased thali and spread evenly with the help of a small spoon.
  • Cut into diamond shapes and garnish with almonds and pistachios. Store in an airtight container.

Grate the jaggery thinly so that no lumps are formed.

Every continent on earth has seen wheat growing except for Antarctica. Wheat is an important source of nutrients in countries around the world. Ghee holds a special place in Hinduism where it is a part of several rituals and pujas. It is even used during Vedic worship.
