Golpapdi, also known as gur papdi, or gol papdi, is another traditional Indian sweet that is normally consumed during winter. It is a relatively simple dish to create as it only has three primary ingredients: ghee, jaggery, and wheat flour. All other ingredients used in the preparation of golpapdi are able to change according to your tastes and preferences. This dessert only takes 15 minutes to actually make, so you can easily have it every day if that suits your palette.

Health Benefits

Golpapdi would not be considered very healthy under normal circumstances. It is considered a sweet after all. But unlike most sweets that you buy in stores, golpapdi is made with whole wheat flour instead of processed flour. Including whole grain wheat in your diet not only provides your body with lots of essential nutrients, but it also lowers your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, obesity and type 2 diabetes.
