  • 1/4 cup Ghee

How to make Golpapdi Recipe - Traditional Gujarati Sweet Crackers

  1. To begin making the Golpapdi Recipe, melt the ghee in a frying pan and add the wheat flour and cardamom powder, stirring constantly till it turns golden brown and releases the roasted aroma. This process takes about 10 minutes on medium heat.

  2. Once the wheat flour has turned a good brown color, turn off the heat and quickly add the jaggery and coconut and stir well, so the jaggery melts quickly in the heat into the wheat flour.

  3. As soon as the jaggery melts, and the mixture is still warm, pour the mixture into a greased baking sheet and spread it evenly with a 3/4th inch thickness.

  4. Sprinkle the sliced almonds and cut into diamond/square shapes while it is still warm. Set the Golpapdi aside and allow it to sit untouched. After about an hour, once the it has cooled, you will find that the crisp Golpapdi is ready.

  5. Store the Golpapdi in airtight containers for about 2 weeks in the refrigerator for maximum freshness.

  6. Serve the Golpapdi Recipe (Traditional Gujarati Sweet Crackers) as a delicious Tea Time Snack or After School Snacks. 

  7. Note: The addition of jaggery to the wheat flour mixture is a tricky procedure. The whole mixture can get brittle and gooey. So use caution, and turn off heat just before adding jaggery.
