Garam Golpapdi

Ek tha Bachpan when Amma used to make Gul Papdi.
In case you do not know what it is then it's a sweet powder make out of wheat flour and jaggery. We used to put a big spoonful in the mouth and say “Fufi” and the powder came out in puffs! Silly I know but fun, just imagine girls in STD VIII, IX &X doing this!!
Then I forgot all about it. When I saw this recipe that I had copied from Tarla Dalal it revived all those carefree days. How I miss them now!!

So before we get straight to the recipe let me tell you that the original recipe called for Khus-Khus which I have replaced with Til or Sesame seeds. 

 Garam Gulpapdi

Recipe source Tarla Dalal


1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup ghee
1 tsp til/sesame seeds
½ cup grated jaggery
½ tsp elichi/ green cardamom


1.  Roast the til/sesame seeds till they become light brown on law flame in a kadhai/wok.
2.     Heat ghee in kadhai/wok.
3.     Add the whole wheat flour roast on low flame till golden brown stir continuously.
4.    Add til/sesame seeds cook for few more seconds
5.     Remove from flame stir and cool it a little.
6.     Add jaggery and elichi/ green cardamom stir. The jaggery will dissolve.
7.    In case it does not return to flame.
8.     Serve hot/warm.

This hardens in case it cools down so serve immediately. Since I did not know this I let it stay like a lump it was. Next time it gets shaped. In my Office the hardened   hard chiki or brittle we all enjoyed.
 P.S. Use 1-2 tbsp milk after the jaggery. The original recipe called for this and I forgot.
