સુખડી/ Sukhadi

It’s the simplest Gujarati Sweet and we both love it, especially when served hot. The best part is, it’s easy to make and all ingredients are always available. And icing on the cake is, though it’s sweet, it has got no sugar. Simple may it sound, let me confess so far I could never make perfect સુખડી. Either it would be too hard or too soft. But this time, I had been very patient and it’s nearly perfect.

Makes 20-25 pieces (Two small plates)
Preparation Time: 10 Minute
Cooking Time: 20 Minute

2 cup whole wheat chapatti flour
1 to 1.25 cup ghee
1 cup shredded jaggery

1. Heat ghee in thick bottom pan on low flame. Start with 1 cup
2. When hot enough, add flour and stir continuously, if required add remaining ¼ cup of ghee
3. When this mixture starts leaving ghee on edge and it’s about to change color, turn off the heat
4. Add jaggery and mix well
5. Spread the mixture in plate while hot
6. Let it cool down, cut into pieces and store it at room temperature


  1. I tried it yesterday...but they came out very hard...soo hard that I had to throw them away..can you tell me why is that..??

    1. You might have roasted flour for long time. And add jaggery only after turning off the heat. Hope this helps

  2. You can also try this way. It always comes out good for me so far. I first roast flour separately in pan without ghee for 3-4 minutes on low heat. Then, put ghee in another pan, add jaggery until melted properly and started coming up little bit.Turn off the hit and take it from the stove. Now slowly add roasted flour into it and mix well. spread nicely in greased plate.
